Howell Farm is operated by Mercer County Park Commission and uses a historical farm setting to teach about food production. Interns raise crops with ox- and hand-powered methods and practice other skills related to self-sufficient living, such as seed saving and food preservation. In addition to
hands-on work, study resources are provided. Many interns apply these skills to international development work, others to small­scale farming and homesteading.
