Get Your Hands Dirty
Rhizosphere Farm is looking for a couple interns to help out around the farm while learning all about sustainable farming. Room and partial board is provided, but the knowledge you’ll gain about running a sustainable farm makes this internship quite valuable indeed. The internship starts in May but you have to apply before April 15. http://rhizospherefarm.org/
Kona Brewing Company just announced they’re expanding their distribution to include Nebraska, which is great news if you’ve ever lamented that your beer drinking experiences here in the Heartland would be better if you could just get your hands on some Hawaiian beer. In other beverage news, Cantina Laredo is happy to report that their Creighton Bluejay Margarita is back on the menu.
