NOFA NJ Twilight Meeting of Farming with Interns

July 25th, 2012 | Posted by Robin in Events and Workshops

NOFA’s Twilight meeting about Farming with Interns was hosted at North Slope Farm on Monday, July 22nd.  It was a friendly, laid back gathering of experienced farmers, new intern/farm workers and those who have recently discovered their love and interest in sustainable farming.  With participants sharing in a tasty potluck the evening was filled with stories of farming experiences, woes and successes.  The discussion focused on the need and draw backs of hiring inexperienced interns on the farm as well as fair compensation, including financial, living and learning rewards.  The evening was wrapped up with a tour of North Slope at dusk.
