Intern with FairShare

Spring 2014 Internships Now Available!

Beth & Lauren, two of FairShare CSA Coalition’s lovely former interns.

As a FairShare CSA Coalition intern, you will become immersed in the local food movement in one of the most cutting edge communities in the country.  FairShare’s Community & Grower Programs focus on consumer and farmer outreach and education, building awareness of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), ensuring that CSA is accessible to all households and strengthening the community of family farmers in Southern Wisconsin.

FairShare CSA Coalition has up to three volunteer internship positions available for the Spring 2014 semester. As a FairShare intern you will assist in outreach campaigns, administrative tasks, workshop coordination, resource development and research, and fundraising events. Through this internship program you are encouraged to attend relevant conferences, workshops, and meetings for increased awareness and networking opportunities. You will gain valuable community organizing experience and contribute to critical programs that work to build the strength and vitality of our local farms and to increase access to good, healthy food.

“[FairShare] has been a very important part of my last year in school. I feel very lucky to have had these opportunities to further my skills and to be a part of such a great organization.” — Laura Quist, 2009/2010 Community Program Intern
