Pollinator Project and Williamstown Farmers Market Internship

Local Pollinator Project and Williamstown Farmers Market
CES is once again publicizing a full-time summer internship for 8-10
weeks in Williamstown (dates and hours flexible, can be separated
into two segments) providing a two-fold opportunity to delve into local
environmental and agricultural issues.
This year, the intern will expand upon prior Williams student initiatives
aimed at increasing pollinator friendly lands in Williamstown. This
entails working with the Bee Friendly Williamstown collective, whose
projects include planting pollinator gardens at The Spruces park and
the Milne Public Library, assisting homeowners with replacing streetside
grassy strips, locating areas of town and campus suitable for
less frequent mowing, and bringing programs to the public. If
interested, the intern can also propose their own research or
initiatives relating to pollinator friendly environments.
The intern will also serve as an assistant at the Williamstown Farmers
Market (WFM), promoting and managing the weekly Saturday
markets at the base of Spring Street. Tasks include interacting with
vendors and customers, staffing the market information booth,
arranging musicians and special events, and updating the market’s
Facebook page, website, and Instagram posts. If an intern has
special interests relating to the farmers market (such as developing
initiatives from other markets, understanding the local agricultural
economy and food accessibility issues), these can be pursued as
