The miracle of food production and the joy of sharing information (dare we say: and reaping the knowledge?) that occurs on our farm would not be possible without the support of the people of Prescott and our regional community. Enthusiastic supporters frequent our on-site market, volunteer, attend our classes, eat our pizza and sometimes just come by to hang out and cheer us on.
Want to get involved with the goings-on at the farm? We hope so! There are as many opportunities for getting involved as there are ways to sneak up on a cabbage butterfly. The Borner Farm Project is a place where community is created and nurtured; the more people that get involved, the stronger and broader our community becomes.

Skills Desired: No prior experience in a farm or garden setting is required! Our goal is to educate; as long as you’ve got a desire to learn independently as well as from and alongside co-workers and community members, you’re set. We’re looking for hard-working, responsible, positive, and open-minded candidates to complete our farm force for the 2020 season.
Housing, stipend, length of stay, and other details will be discussed with each applicant on an individual basis.
The Borner Farm Project is putting down some serious roots, and every intern is capable of making a tremendous difference to the project and community! This is the ideal internship for someone interested in being an essential part of the success of a new urban farm with a big-hearted vision and a strong network of community support. It is also ideal for someone who wants to gain experience connecting a small town community with urban agriculture. We find what we’re doing to be deeply gratifying, always interesting, humbling, empowering, and fun. Our goal is to foster the same in our interns!
Your Next Step: Email us your resume (including three references), as well as a cover letter explaining why you are excited about the possibility of interning at The Borner Farm Project for the 2020 season!
Whether you’re looking for a one-hour or once-a-week gig, whether you’re an individual or a group, there are probably projects you could help us out with! We’ve had volunteers of all ages doing everything from transplanting tomatoes and building fences to pre-pizza-night prep and sales assistance. Please email the staff if you’d like to volunteer at the farm, or drop by during a weekday and we’ll talk!
If you’re looking to dive into the on-farm experience with both hands and with some time to burn, you sound like you might be a WWOOFer! Don’t know what WWOOFing is? Check out the international website here http://www.wwoof.net, or the USA-based program website here https://wwoofusa.org. In the past we’ve hosted WWOOFers from the next town over, and a WWOOFer all the way from Germany! Please email the staff to ask about position availability.
