A Record-breaking Internship Cohort!

By Uttama Pranaya | Fundraising & Communications

Dear friends,

We're thrilled to announce that the doors to our organic farm are wide open once again to agricultural students to do their internship program, and this time, we're breaking records with a total of 28 students joining us at the farm!

When students come to the farm to do their internship program, the aim has always been the exchange of knowledge and passion for organic farming. This time, 25 students come from local agricultural high schools and 3 students come from Indonesia’s prestigious agricultural university, Bogor Agricultural Institute (Institut Pertanian Bogor, IPB)

This number marks a significant milestone for our program. Over the years, we've had an average of around 30 students per year, making this the most extensive cohort we've ever had at one time.

Additionally, the internship program has always been about more than just farming. It's about nurturing the next generation of agricultural leaders who are passionate about organic farming, sustainable farming methods, environmental stewardship, and the future of food security. Each student brings their own unique perspectives, fresh ideas, and boundless enthusiasm, enriching our farm with their presence.

As they immerse themselves in the daily rhythms of our organic farm, these students will gain hands-on experience in every aspect of organic farming. From tilling the soil, to nurturing seedlings and crops, and to harvesting the produce that they have planted.

The personal development of each of the young farmers during the internship will extend far beyond the work in the farm. As they have come to stay in our facilities, they are also exposed to the responsibilities of living away from home—from ensuring the cleanliness of the facilities, cooking their own food, developing respectful friendships with one another, and eventually becoming valuable members of society.

So, as we welcome this record-breaking cohort of interns, we invite you all to join us in celebrating the growth of our organic farming community. Together, we're sowing the seeds of a greener, healthier, and more sustainable future. Stay tuned for updates and stories from our interns as they embark on this incredible journey of growth, learning, and organic farming.

NB: If you can, we would appreciate it if you could set up a monthly donation through GlobalGiving as this provides us with  a sustainable source of funds. New monthly donations (up to $200 per unique donor) will have their first donation matched at 100% after four (4) total payments.
