This collaborative educational program was developed by Jefferson County farmers and Washington State University (WSU) Extension and provides interns the opportunity to study sustainable agricultural enterprises and community-based production systems at several diverse farms in the Port Townsend area.  Interns are provided formal instruction, field-based application of information, and involvement in projects on farms that produce and market vegetables, fruit, field crops, and livestock. Opportunities to observe and engage in different production, business, and marketing approaches are provided through activities at the different farms throughout the season.
