2024 Farm Intern applications are open!

As we excitedly get started on our 2024 growing season, we are opening up applications for this years farm interns! Are you interested in learning more and developing your skills in growing, planning, and operating a small-scale urban farm? Would you like to spend the year on the land learning from and alongside others passionate about farming and food justice?

This volunteer position provides a season-long opportunity to assist in running a successful small-scale urban farm. Volunteer Interns will be leaders on the farm and gain hands-on experience in all aspects of enterprise, including farm management, volunteer coordination, community outreach and education with supervision and mentorship from our Farm Manager. We believe that the best way to learn about farming is by farming, and therefore the majority of the internship will involve working alongside our farmers and learning about the importance of planning, pace, efficiency and timing.

We are not looking simply for labourers, but for people keen to learn as much as they can about running a successful urban farming operation. Our hope is that our volunteer interns will leave the program feeling confident that they have a solid base of understanding in how to run a small urban farm operation. Reference letters available upon completion of internship.

Internship Details:

  • March – October 2024
  • 3 hours a week, either 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm
  • Day is flexible, but must be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday (not Wednesday)
  • Access to produce when available

Please see the link below for full details including how to apply
