CEFS now accepting applications for 2015 summer internships
The Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) is accepting applications for eight-week summer internships (June 9 – July 31) at the CEFS research and Extension facilities near Goldsboro. The website listing of learning and hands-on experience opportunities for 2015 interns includes community-based food systems, small-scale vegetable production, organic certification, integrated pest and weed management and pasture-based beef production and dairying. Among the CEFS research units is one devoted to small-farm enterprises and another directed to research into organic production. Individuals selected for the summer internships will work with CEFS faculty mentors who will guide them through hands-on explorations of various aspects of sustainable agriculture. The SAES, N.C. State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services operate the CEFS jointly.
