Natural Pesticides Research Project: Essential Oils, Extracts and Insecticidal Soap

Organization: Yerba Buena Farm

Location: Jamaica

Contact: Please contact Agape Adams by email (yerbabuenaja@aol.com) or by phone (876-339-1027)

Type of Opportunity: Internship-Interns will be expected to work on this project 40 hours a week. We are flexible about the particular dates.

Duties: Interns will make soap in small batches, and do all the testing in the garden.  We will test our soap against the commercial soap, and will also experiment with adding our essential oils, extracts and other promising additives such as sulphur.  We want to test soap that is made at different pH levels to see what is most effective.
Interns will help to care for the garden and will take part in other activities of the farm as part of a 40 work week.  Past interns have gone to the bamboo forest to gather bamboo for a natural building project, gone to the bat cave to collect guano for use as fertilizer, and after a storm, hauled truckloads of seaweed from a nearby beach to put in our compost pile.

Start/End Dates: varies

Cost: Room and board is $1,500 per month; this includes housing and three meals a day, lots of snacks and an abundance of fresh fruit.  We recommend a minimum stay of two months, and a maximum stay of one semester or the full summer.

How to Apply: To apply for this internship, please find the application here.

Jamaican Top Bar Beekeeping Internship

Organization: Yerba Buena Farm

Location: Jamaica

Contact: Please contact Agape Adams by email (yerbabuenaja@aol.com) or by phone (876-339-1027) for more information.

Type of Opportunity: Internship-Interns will be expected to work on this project 40 hours a week. We are flexible about the particular dates.

Duties: On our farm, you will build, stock and do everything related to the management of top bar hives. You will build and use equipment such as pollen traps, foundation moulds and queen cages. We host a Bee Club based at the local primary school. You will help run the Bee Club activities - they meet every two weeks at our farm.  If we are in a honey flow during your internship period, you will raise queens. To strengthen and diversify the genetics of the colonies in our apiary, we will collect a comb of eggs from the best hives from the apiaries of different beekeepers in our parish and raise queens using these eggs. By the end of your internship, you should understand what is involved in treatment free, natural beekeeping. You will be fluent in top bar hive building and management. You will have experience leading workshops. You will get a sense of the beekeeping environment here in Jamaica, and can be as active as you wish in our project, which actually supports international development efforts that use apiculture as a poverty reduction tool. Beekeeping can only help people rise above poverty if the hives and the methods are affordable! We require interns to keep a blog and to write regular posts.

Start/End Dates: varies

Cost: We are a family farm, and cannot afford to support this project financially, so all interns must contribute $1500 per month for their room and three meals a day, along with plenty of snacks and fruit. We will also do our best to introduce the interns to the town and the people who live here in an informal way so that the interns can fully experience life in a rural Jamaican town.
