The SWAG Project farm team is excited to offer various seasonal internship opportunities this growing season to students and community members interested in taking an initial step into the world of urban farming and community development. Please see the list below and attached descriptions.

– Communications + Social Media Intern: Communications Internship_SWAG 2015

– Market + Farm Intern: Farm and Market Internship_SWAG 2015

– Community Outreach + Volunteer Coordinator: Community Outreach Coordinator_SWAG 2015

Please review the description and send a resume and cover letter with the heading ‘Position Name – Your Name’ to swagprojectnewark@gmail.com

Although the opportunities are unpaid positions, these experiences will provide participants with a fundamental understanding of key issues in our food system and their relationship to urban agriculture, helping interns to develop and hone the necessary skills and knowledge required for employment in the non-profit, community development and food system sectors. We will work with any student’s academic institution to assist the individual in receiving college credit if possible, or pay a small stipend for transportation costs.

#FundSWAG Fundraising Push

Thanks to all of you dear friends, family and partners who donated yesterday to help SWAG Project create IMG_1177stronger communities through food. Because of you we raised over $700 in donations yesterday alone.
This pushed us past our halfway mark of $3000! Please continue to share our fundraiser throughout the next month.  We have until the end of March to make our total goal of $6k to fund sustainability and the 2015 season at SWAG.  Funding this year will go to supporting new sustainability interns, creation of a new composting program and the construction of a new greenhouse!

And if you haven’t already, PLEASE Donate to the project – $25, $50, $100 –  any amount helps continue our food justice and community development efforts in Newark and beyond!  To donate, follow this link: http://bit.ly/SWAG_IOBY  ‪#‎fundSWAG‬ IMG_4514
