Apply for Gathering Ground 2022 Internship Program

Gathering Ground on Washington Island is accepting applications for its 2022 summer internship program, a work-learn-live experience about regenerative agriculture and ecological living that’s open to people aged 18-27 who have an interest in environmental studies, organic and regenerative agriculture, food justice, conservation and communal and ecological living.

During the 10-week program, June 1 – Aug. 10, students will work 20-30 hours at a local farm or land-based business and earn their pay directly through their job site. They will also learn through field trips, seminars and hands-on instruction in Gathering Ground’s orchard and vineyards. 

The program cost is $350, which covers subsidized housing, curriculum, field trips and one common meal each week. If participants have their own island housing, the cost is $200.

Gathering Ground’s directors will also work with any students who are in college programs and wish to receive credit for their summer experience.
