St. Mary, Jamaica.
Organization: Yerba Buena Farm, Jamaica
Type of opportunity: Internship
Contact: Agape Adams, firstname.lastname@example.org
Duties: On our farm, you will do everything related to the management of top bar hives, including inspecting all of the colonies in our apiaries. You will help us to build hives of different materials, sizes and uses. We host a Bee Club with local families and children as members. You will help run the Bee Club activities – they meet every two weeks at our farm. If we are in a honey flow during your internship period, you will raise queens and process honey and wax. You will make mead, candles, balms and lotions and more.
Desired qualifications: Resilience is a helpful quality to have in Jamaica, as things do not always work out as planned, and you need to be able to bounce back, adjust and try again without losing your enthusiasm. Self-motivation is essential, as our normal life on our farm will demand our energy, and you need to be able to work independently once given direction.
Cost: We are a family farm, and cannot afford to support this project financially, so all interns must contribute $1500 per month for their room and three meals a day, along with plenty of snacks and fruit.
How to apply: Please contact Agape Adams by email (email@example.com) or by phone (876-343-1121) for more information.
