Native Seeds/SEARCH is seeking applicants for our internship program in crop genetic resources conservation. The emphasis of this program is in training individuals who are positioned to directly implement what they learn from their internship experience within Native American communities in the Southwest; applicants do not have to be of Native American descent themselves. Upon completion of the program, interns will be armed with hands-on experience and tools necessary to implement and strengthen regional seed conservation efforts in Native communities. NS/S has always recognized the critical importance of Native agriculture and initiated this internship program to help build capacity in Native communities for their own food security and sovereignty.
We will hire two internship positions for the summer and fall of 2015.
