Hello Debra:  I want to notify you of an upcoming opportunity that may
be of interest to your students. We are offering a summer internship
overseeing and teaching in the organic and landscape gardening program
at the women's prison facility in Windsor, VT.
The program includes a new, large heated greenhouse, about 3 acres
of tillable land, and a participation of about 20 residents over the
summer some of whom will be seeking academic credit. We teach
fundamentals of landscape gardening and organic principles to help
residents gain employment skills upon their return to the general
The facility is a former dairy farm and offers a good natural
environment in which to work. It is a low security facility so there
are negligible personal safety issues. However, because of the gender
issues women applicants are preferred. We will provide training to the
candidate in prison safety and in the scope of the gardening work. The
candidate will be expected to help in documenting continued development of the
curriculum offered to the participating residents. This position
carries a stipend and offers flexible hours.
If you would like further details and/or have interested applicants,
please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks

Chuck Fenton
