Howdy Farm internships allow students to gain hands-on experience in small scale sustainable vegetable and fruit production. We offer internships that allow students the chance to experience a wide range of responsibilities and focus on a unique capstone project. Students gain on-the-job experience in a variety of forms.
The internship is unpaid, but you will receive class credit through HORT 484. You may be able to register for the 484 credit from a different department if Hort 484 doesn't work with your degree plan, please check with your advisor before applying!
Prerequisites: sophomore, junior, or senior classification (freshmen can participate with special approval); Howdy Farm supervisor approval; departmental approval; 2.0 GPR in major and overall. You must also volunteer 3 hours at the farm before applying. Our volunteer hours are M, W, F from 1-5pm. If you can't volunteer at the farm before applying please contact the farm manager, Corey Wahl, at firstname.lastname@example.org 1-3 course credit hours may be earned in a semester, but preference will be given to students who can register for 3 credits.
