Land Stewardship Project
Land Stewardship Project is a membership organization that fosters an ethic of stewardship for farmland and promotes sustainable agriculture and sustainable communities. Programs and projects in four offices are designed to:
- Support the development of prosperous, diversified, family-sized farms;
- Hold government and corporations accountable for protecting environmental quality in rural areas and assuring farmers equal opportunity for access to land, markets and credit; and
- Develop healthy communities. LSP involves its members in research, education, community organizing, and publishing.
From time to time, LSP has openings for interns to work on particular projects in particular offices. There is no generic internship. To find out about opportunities, interested persons should contact:
