Internships

The EVON staff loves to work with long-term students! Long-term internships (minimum 3 months) are free of cost, but you must cover the costs of your own food and lodging in Patalekhet. You will work with the staff every day, learning new topics and seeing the routine work involved in managing an organic orchard/farm system. Talk to Shyam (9849325002; shyamorganic@gmail.com) about specific topics that you would like to focus on, such as grafting or pruning or tree care or vegetable planting. These activities vary seasonally and may determine when the best time of year is for you to come spend some time working at EVON. Short-term internships (ie. a week) on specialized topics will incur similar costs as our trainings. Internships are a great way to really dive into technical topics and to receive mentoring & advice from our experienced staff.
