2015 Youth Farm Internship Program
Interns are a vital part of our farm!
Youth Farm Interns will learn about sustainable agriculture,
farm management, and youth education alongside experienced urban farmers and
food justice advocates.
Youth Farm Interns assist Farmers in a variety of farm tasks: seed sowing and planting, bed preparation, irrigation, weeding, pest and crop management, harvesting and post harvest handling, bouquet making, carpentry, data entry, community outreach and more!
By committing 6-12 hours a week during the spring, summer, fall and/or winter, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in how a farm evolves throughout the growing season, from early sowings of tomatoes and peppers in March, to garlic planting and cover cropping in November. By returning to the same farm each week, you observe the minute changes that unfold, and gain the skills needed to nurture a healthy, sustainable and productive farm over a season.
Our internship program is designed to be educational and fun, and provide a solid mentorship to those interested in working in urban or rural sustainable agriculture, as well as those who want to volunteer and get their hands dirty helping grow a greener city.
