Types of Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Internships
If you are studying in the field of Agriculture, Permaculture, Horticulture, or Farm management, then you can work alongside professionals focussed on more sustainable, environmentally-friendly agricultural practices around the world.
And if your interests lie in topics related to Food Security, then Kaya has some great internship options focussed on sustainable land practices and tackling world hunger.
We have placements in organic farming, fair trade cooperatives, permaculture, animal husbandry, home-garden education, youth education, sustainability projects, agro-tourism and more.
You can learn how farmers in challenging environments maximize their crops, how environmental considerations are incorporated into farming practices, the economics of fair trade work, or how nutritional needs are served through changing eating habits.
There are many organizations working to bring home and community gardens to low-income communities, and farm initiatives offering income opportunities to marginalized populations.
