The Local Food Project at Airlie summer internship program helps prepare young growers to become the next generation of local food leaders. Not only do interns gain practical experience in sustainable agriculture, they also learn communication, decision-making, teamwork, and strategic planning skills that they can apply to future activities at school, in their careers, and around the community. Each intern designs and carries out a summer-long project, then presents it in a creative way at the end of their time with the LFP. You’ll also hear from them occasionally on this blog!
