ABOUT HOUSE IN THE WOODS FARM
House in the Woods Farm is an organic farm in Frederick County (Adamstown, Maryland), established in 2000. We run a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, sell to our local natural food co-op, and support the Frederick Food Bank. Our farm is certified organic and uses sustainable farming practices. Our farm is operated by farm owners, Phil and Ilene Freedman. Phil has an electrical engineering degree from The University of Rochester. Ilene has a Masters degree in Environmental Psychology from The University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment.
ABOUT OUR INTERNSHIPS
Typically, summer internships involve 4-12 hours of work per week for the summer, often beginning in late May or the first week of June. Find out what your credit program requires in number of hours worked. Transportation to the farm is required; public transportation is not accessible.
We have been working with college interns on the farm for over ten years. We support student interns with a context of how higher education can apply to sustainable agriculture, a wide variety of tasks on the farm, and conversations about current events in agriculture so students can gain a broad perspective on how an organic farm can operate and impact community.
These are unpaid internships. Support for personalized writing or farm projects available. Perks include weekly organic veggies.
