• Work the Land

    Work the land Internship program is a two-month course designed to take interns through a practical working experience of ecological/sustainable living.

    image-897

    The internship’s primary focus is to catalyze a process of learning, communication, and rewarding work, which benefits its participants, the environment and the farm community. This process will provide you with the basic practices and foundations for sustainable and ecological living. We want to give you the proper tools and techniques so you can apply your knowledge in your own community, home, or local farm. Through working and living on the farm, interns are integrated into the farm’s social and cultural life. The farm community is composed of four primary groups: 1) Israelis doing National Service, 2) Israelis doing Year of Service, 3) International participants on the Masa Eco-Israel Program, and 4) Farm coordinators.
