Our Academic Year Intern program provides an opportunity for students on financial aid to gain experience in our garden. The work is often physical but not overly demanding, and the fringe benefits are numerous and highly regarded. Students work four to eight hours/week, only when our staff is here (M-F, 8:00 to 5:00), tailoring their work schedule to their more important academic needs.  We do ask that interns work for a block of time no less than two hours. Work boots are a requirement. Honey-bees, wasps and other stinging critters are sometimes encountered, as is the occasional poison ivy patch. Hyper-sensitivity to any exposure or assault by these will not exclude a candidate, but we need to know about the condition. For more information, please contact Eric Larson (eric.larson@yale.edu)
