I'm a 20 year old college student, in the Midwest, and I want to have a summer job on a farm. I've heard about programs that offer housing and food right on the farm, as well as a stipend. I am not sure if I am willing to travel very far (out of the Midwest), but if the pay is right I might just consider it.
I volunteer right now at an urban farm in my city but I want to learn more about the field. I'm studying environmental science and have an interest in sustainability/urban farming. I figure this is also one of those "experience things" I want to do while I'm young. I have looked on google a few times and am overwhelmed and confused by all the results I get.
So metafilter, can anyone give me tips, advice, anecdotes, links, or any information about these programs/jobs?
