We are  offering 1-2 month volunteer internships in the Nursery and/or Farm throughout the 2018 growing season. These positions require a minimum half-day commitment for one day per week, for a minimum 4 weeks at a time.

Urban Nursery Internship Dates                                                                                                            March-June

Urban Farming Internship Dates                                                                                                            March-October

These positions require less of a time commitment than the apprentice position, and we are often able to send volunteer interns home with produce or plants. If you’re interested in the internship please email us with ‘2018 Volunteer Internship’ in the subject line. Let us know if you’d prefer to be in the nursery, or the farm, or both and indicate what months you’re interested in.

Day of the week for Internships is to be decided.

  • chickens in the city
