Judea Garden, a Steep Rock Association community project in Washington, is offering two paid summer internships from July 5 through Aug. 26.

Applicants must be either high school students (16 years old by end of summer) or college students (through class of 2016) and be available to work 20 hours per week in the Washington garden.

Now in its eighth season, Judea Garden has grown, harvested and distributed over 25,000 pounds of fresh produce to members of the community with limited financial resources through local food banks, senior centers and social service agencies.

The internship will provide lessons on sustainable agriculture and current food issues while growing vegetables for local food banks.

Interns will identify and control insects and diseases, identify weeds and their properties, use succession harvesting through planting for fall crops, harvest and distribute foods, and participate in all garden tasks.

The internships are made possible in part by a grant from the Connecticut Community Foundation.

The application is available at www.steeprockassoc.org or by emailing denise.arturi@steeprockassoc.org.
