Thank you so much for your interest in the Desert Farming Initiative (DFI). We are very grateful to those that are interesting in working at DFI and taking part in the in our mission of student involvement, research and agricultural outreach.

Interested in an internship?
We hire a few interns throughout the year as new projects are started. Internship openings are typically posted in October and November for the following year. We expect our interns to commit to both spring and summer semesters.  Additionally, due to the nature of farm duties, interns are also required to have their own transportation. Please send an email to Dave at dforrest@unr.edu to inquire about available opportunities.

Interested in volunteering?
We love our volunteers, and host open volunteer days from 9-11am every Friday. Please contact Dave at dforrest@unr.edu to ask about meeting location.
