The Lord's Acre

The Lord’s Acre

The Lord’s Acre is a non-profit organic garden near Asheville NC that offers community volunteers the opportunity to help grow organic food for those in need. But the issues in our community cannot be solved by feeding one segment of the population. We exist to bring ALL people together around food and foster relationships and believe that in doing so, we will enable and inspire people to know, love and help each other. Instead of simply growing food and giving it away, we are not afraid to wrestle with questions that go beyond food security and food justice, to the very core of what it means to be a neighbor and to love your neighbor.

We began in 2009 and took our name from an initiative that began in this area during the great depression, where neighbors donated what they produced on one acre to those in need. We are not a faith based organization and are not affiliated with any denomination.

An internship with us is an opportunity to work hard, use your gifts, take leadership roles, and learn more about food security, nonprofits and community building. We utilize many growing methods including hand-dug raised beds, field cropping with tillers, deep mulch, hugelkulture, strawbale, and experiment with creative ways to “do food” in community. Our educational component is experiential, academic and personal. We value interns’ minds as much as their muscle. Hours are generally M-F from 7:00 – 12:00; Wednesday evenings from 5:00 – 8:00; and occasional afternoons and Saturday mornings to accommodate groups. We offer room, board, an excellent and well-rounded education and a chance to use your leadership skills. We do not offer a stipend at this time. Interns typically find paying jobs in the community since they only work aprx. 30/hours a week at the garden. Applicants need not have experience. THIS YEAR ONLY – we are only able to accept female applicants due to a change in our housing situation.

If you’re a passionate self-starter with an interest in community-based solutions to food issues, if you’re energetic, love people, have a positive attitude in all types of weather and want to learn from experienced gardeners and talented board members, write us for an application at Check us out at We come highly recommended by all past interns.
