Our friend Victoria Rust and her family are looking for a short-notice intern to work on their farm in Trinidad, mostly with animals. Here are the details and contact info if you’re interested:

We are looking for a short-term farm intern starting January 16th. The internship would be ending on February 17th. Housing and utilities would be provided for the month as well as minimal staple food products, think beans & rice & goat meat.

Might be a good opportunity for someone who would like more farm experience working with animals (sheep & goats) and has some spare time this winter. College credit could be worked out for sure!

The deal is that Yogev, Maya, & I are heading to NYC & Israel for a while and our dear roomate/buddy Isai will be stuck at the farm all by his lonesome. He more or less just needs someone on hand to help if there are emergencies. Minimal work required: help with daily chores, some pork product sales, and firewood sales. One room in a farm house will be provided, shared kitchen, bathroom, & living room. Wood stove & portable electric heaters for heat. No pets, sorry.

Winters down here are fairly mild. There’s a little community co-op with some good food selections. Also, a radical skate park for those so inclined!

Please forward to anyone you’d think may be interested. Call or email me asap if you are.

Love to you all!

Tori
