Our Weekly Schedule
March 23rd- May 15th:
Tues, Weds, Thurs and Sat 10-4
May 18th- Oct 18th:
Monday 8-1 (field trip)
Tues 8-1 and 3-8*
Weds 7-1 with hour breakfast break.
Thurs 8-1 and 3-8
(Weds 1:30-dark is Woodstock Market...optional to join )
Note, The schedule shifts to a summer schedule on May 18th so we can work during the most pleasant part of the day.:)
All summer interns living at Clove Valley are required to attend Tuesday 3-8 shift plus pick three other 5-hour shifts (Tues 8-1, Weds 8-1, Thursday 8-1, or Thurs 3-8).
This adds up to about 20 hours, which includes several hours of cooking and cleaning. We'll work in the garden from 8am until 1ish, and traditionally one or two people head to the kitchen at 11:30ish to make lunch for everyone and clean up:)
The idea is we can accommodate a variety of outside work. There is often landscaping and farming and catering and construction and other odd jobs to be found in the community for those who need it.
*Tues 3-8 will include some form of co-created community meeting to keep relations smooth and communication open and clear. Dish-schedules, intentions, feelings, whatever comes up!
We are located in a STUNNINGLY beautiful valley right on the Shawangunk Ridge in High Falls, only 20 minutes from Kingston and New Paltz & 1.5 hr north of NYC. Depending on length of stay, we offer transportation to and from the Rosendale Bus-stop (www.trailways.com) from Port Authority, NYC.
Interns share our fully-stocked communal kitchen and living room (with wifi )on the ground floor of a gigantic Dutch barn. There is also an outdoor kitchen/patio with wifi which offers a more covid-safe environment for visitors. Sleeping arrangements include 5 different fun, beautiful, and private "glamping" situations... platforms with tents and tarped living spaces. We have 2 or 3 house tents large enough for a couple, and 2 regular-sized tents.
Basic food plus seasonal produce is provided. We make communal meals on work days Mon-Thurs daytime, plus Tuesday and Thurs eve when you're available. Dinner and other meals are improvised, but the more communal meals the better! Generally pre-packaged snack food appear only occasionally;)
