BECOME AN INTERN

TERRA is happy to announce internship opportunities for 2022!

Contact us now and get the chance to be part of the core team of TERRA this season!

A unique experience giving you the opportunity to get hands-on practical and theoretical knowledge on all the elements involved in running an ecologically regenerative and economically viable market garden enterprise. From crop-planning and bed-prep to pricing and marketing and everything in between, this internship program offers a concise, guided, deep dive into the whole market gardening experience!

The internship programs run from April through to October and consist of a full immersion into the daily tasks at TERRA as well as participation in the core-team management and decision-making process. Interns are expected to be present 5 eight-hour- days a week as well as occasional weekend events and distributions. Interns are granted days-off just like all other members of the team. TERRA is responsible for providing a wholesome educational setting and guided hands-on experience in a friendly and nurturing environment. No financial remuneration or salary is offered to interns. Most of the vegetable needs of the interns are covered by TERRA, however they are expected to be fully responsible for other food needs and accommodation.

Over the past years, our experience with internships has been excellent. Probably the most mutually rewarding experience TERRA has known. We are very happy to see that over 70% of our past interns are now running their own successful enterprises! May you be the next one?

Limited places available                                  Deadline: February 15th

Know you want to be a part of the future of regenerative agriculture? 

TERRA can be the place where you develop your skills to become a conscious, confident, and able gardener. We work together with the Lycée Technique Agricole in Ettelbruck and are always looking for hungry apprentices. 

 

We begin with a two week trial period prior to making a decision if you are a good fit for the TERRA TEAM. Not only your ability to work well is important, but your values and integration into the group. You will be part of a very small, close-knit and dedicated team and we will ask a lot of you.

As we got more and more requests for consultations, we had to start charging.

 

ACTIVITIES

At TERRA, everyone can get their hands dirty: sow, plant, weed, harvest and get the opportunity to discover the site. If you are a teacher, an educational group leader or in an association and you would like to come to our garden for some activities, we have several programmes for different age groups, ranging from preschool kids to senior groups.

 

We organise programs for half a day or a whole day, but also, exciting longer projects that allow you to witness and live the change of the seasons and to really connect with nature. The exact content of the activities depends on the season and the program is designed for each group individually, catering to the age and interests of your group. Don’t hesitate to contact us so we can figure out your perfect program!

TRAINING

Are you passionate about vegetable growing? Do you want to get more hands-on experience and take your green thumb to the next level?
