Somerville Maple Syrup Project Interns – Groundwork Somerville (Somerville, MA)

Groundwork Somerville is seeking interns to help run our Somerville Maple Syrup Project, now entering its tenth year! Each winter we tap local sugar maple trees, collect the sap for 4-6 weeks, and run educational programming in the Somerville Public Schools’ second-grade classrooms, teaching about the science and history of maple syrup. Finally in early March, we host a two-day boildown event at the Somerville Growing Center, with music, snacks, tapping demos, and onsite syrup production.

We are looking to hire several interns in three areas: Fundraising & Marketing; Event Planning (aiding with coordination of the tapping and boildown); and Education. Interns should be able to commit at least 2-4 hours per week from mid-December through mid-January and more in late January through March; they must be able to attend the Boildown on March 8th and 9th, 2013; and they should be able to travel independently around Somerville, including the Union Square area.

Strong written and verbal communication skills, good organization, reliability, and responsibility are required, as well as self-motivation and a creative streak! While these internships are unpaid, we are happy to provide recommendations and references; in addition, interns will gain valuable skills in coordination, planning, fundraising, teaching, urban agriculture, and maple sugar production.

    a cup of uncooked macaroni or dry beans
    over the bottom of the crust. Women, show the world that,
    “This is what 40 looks like”, thank you Gloria Steinem.
    That said, ditties such as “Comes a Time,” “Sake of the World,” “Be Careful,” “Somewhere Out There” and “Think About Your Troubles” recall
    the poignancy of Phillips’s bright vocals a la Toad, while the acoustic alchemy of Nickel Creek continues to dazzle.
