Hungry World Farm welcomes SOOPers to the farm for short-term stays. Volunteers are encouraged to stay for at least a week (up to 6 weeks), but even shorter stays are possible. Possible volunteer opportunities include construction, remodeling, general maintenance, gardening, general farm tasks (produce, livestock, etc.), and more. If you have particular skills or experience you would like to share with us, let us know.

Housing: Shared on-farm housing provided, access to some farm food

2.5 - 7 month internships are also available for those 18+

Individuals (age 18+) with particular interest in learning about and experiencing small-scale, diversified farming are invited as interns. We welcome self-motivated, creative, and willing learner-workers to partner with us in nurturing soil life, growing food, caring for animals, and sharing the good news of regenerative agriculture with visitors to our educational farm.

Interns can expect to devote about 35 hours per week engaged in experiential learning through farm work in gardens, with livestock, or general farm maintenance. 5 hours per week will be dedicated to focused learning through field trips, presentations, conversations, and recommended reading/viewing. Participation in farm community gatherings is encouraged. These gatherings may include: shared meals, team-building, prayer circle, bonfires, and outings.

Interns should leave with a broadened understanding of regenerative agriculture, strong experience in a wide variety of farm activities, and a deepened love for God and all of Creation. Interns can expect to work hard, have fun, and learn plenty. We want to facilitate a collaborative, community-oriented environment with lots of learning, sharing, and laughter to go along with the work! Please see the HWF website here for more details.
