Making an Impact & Gaining Knowledge

 

Are you thinking about working on a farm? Do you see a future working with animals, but need some hands-on experience? Our farm internships provide that and much more. All interns take part in the daily operations of the farm, performing a wide array of chores, from feeding and herding farm animals to moving irrigation pipe and bucking hay. Interns also help guide tours, learn and practice the principles of permaculture, help rehabilitate and socialize farm animals and participate in special projects.

 

 

We asked Haley, our Sanctuary One intern for January 2018, about her thoughts and takeaways for her month stay.

Interning at Sanctuary One has been an incredible learning journey about the intricacies of what it takes to keep a care farm operating. Immersing myself through learning about the earth and animals helped to deepen my understanding of self at the same time. The knowledgeable staff make learning both fun and enriching. The high level of care shown at Sanctuary One taught me how to care for the earth, animals, and people with a high level of respect and dedication. Thank you Sanctuary One staff and volunteers for your guidance and support, you have all helped me immensely toward my future dream of starting a nonprofit care farm as well!
