Internship for Gettysburg Student

Hi, ES students –

            Here’s a summer opportunity:

Greensulate (NYC) – Summer Intern

Greensulate, a designer/installer of green roofs in New York City, is looking for summer interns during the busy summer green roofing season. Interns will be responsible for meeting daily in the office or on the job site and helping to install and maintain green roofs throughout New York City.  (Note:  this is an eight person start-up with two Gettysburg alumni and they are particularly interested in having interns from Gettysburg.)  Log in to your GettysburgWorks account for more information and to apply.  Deadline: April 30, 2011

            Good luck! – John

Gettysburg College opportunities in local agriculture

For the foodies,

See interesting sustainable agriculture related summer opportunities. The internships at the Elaine Lemmon’s naturally certified (soon to be organic) farm sound particularly interesting. Please contact Ben or Elaine, if you are interested.

Best,
Salma

Hi Folks –

I got your email as someone eager to work in local agriculture in the county or as someone who might be able to connect local farmers to interested students at GC. My name is Ben Wenk and I’m owner/farmers market manager at Three Springs Fruit Farm. We are looking for a few folks willing to help out at some farmers markets for this summer. We would also have the opportunity to get some on-farm production experience in veggies, small fruits, and tree fruits. We travel to Baltimore, DC, and Philadelphia and you’ll certainly learn all the tricks of the trade for direct marketing.

I also wanted to put you in touch with my friend Elaine Lemon of Everblossom Farm in nearby York Springs. Folks who would have an interest in having their own farm someday might want to talk to Elaine first, since she has more farm work opportunities than I do at the moment. Last I spoke with her, she had a management position available as well as an intern spot or two. Her compensation is incredibly competitive for our industry and can be found on the farm’s Facebook (search “Everblossom Farm”) or contact her directly at elaine@everblossomfarm.com

I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have as well.

Thank you for your time, and good luck,

Ben Wenk

Doc,

Could you forward this to students in the department?  My advisor is looking for two field techs this summer.  It might be a good opportunity for a graduate looking for a temporary job or for a younger student who missed out on an REU.

Also, let them know that they can email me as well if they have questions.
