Internships Available at Local Non-Profit

GREENWICH — Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) is offering two paid summer internship opportunities.  ASA is a community-supported, nonprofit conservation organization that endeavors to protect our community’s working farms and forests, connect people to the land, and promote a vibrant future for agriculture and forestry in our region. Since its inception in 1990, ASA has assisted with the protection of 157 properties totaling 27,500 acres in Washington and Rensselaer counties. ASA also engages in various outreach and educational programming to foster an appreciation for working landscapes and promote farm viability. 

The Special Project Internship will provide assistance with projects focusing on land protection in Rensselaer and Washington counties. These projects may include assisting with the development and progress at the Cambridge Community Forest, completing stewardship tasks related to ASA’s conserved lands, and researching possible community conservation projects. The summer intern will be supervised by ASA’s Land Protection Team and spend the majority of his or her time working at ASA’s office with periodic site visits and fieldwork. 

The Events and Fundraising Internship will assist with the delivery of the organization’s two major events (Landscapes for Landsake Art Sale and Exhibition and the Forever Farmland Supper) and provide support for fundraising and community outreach programs. This position is designed for an energetic, multi-tasking, undergraduate student who wants to gain hands-on experience in coordinating and implementing components of complex events and art shows, gain an understanding of the development/fundraising field and broaden their marketing and communications skills. 

Applicants must be enrolled as an undergraduate, have a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation. For more information and to apply visit www.agstewardship.org
