VOLUNTEER INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY
Position: Organic Garden Intern
Organization: The Maritime Village Victory Garden
Location: St. Andrews, New Brunswick
Over the last six years, friends have helped us create a
beautiful, bountiful homestead and garden in this lovely
corner of the Maritimes that borders on the most easterly
part of the U.S. The result is our evolving Eden, in friendly
and historic St. Andrews by-the-Sea. We grow over 100
different vegetables, fruits, trees, herbs and flowers.
Learn about and help with gardening, composting, food
preservation and preparation. Our meals are gourmet natural,
mostly from our gardens, omnivore/flex to meet our needs and
those of our interns. We save our own seed and organize an
annual seed exchange for our region. Our garden provides
much of our food and surplus for friends and neighbours.
Much of our harvest is stored--canned, dried or frozen--and
feeds us all year long. We heat with wood and interns
sometimes help to stack and split wood.
St. Andrews is the first and still the finest seaside
resort in Canada. Whale watching, botanical gardens, an
aquarium, museum, historic homes and estates, hiking,
birdwatching and many other local attractions are a short
walk from our house and garden. Community college and
many shops, cafes and eateries.
Private room and bath in our home available for intern(s)
for up to a week. Longer stays by mutual agreement. We
need interns from April through November and sometimes
Hosts have travelled widely, lived and worked in Central
America, and are peace, justice and environmental activists.
Lovable dog and cat in house.
