City Farm School 2014 – Internships open!

We are happy to announce that we are now accepting applications for 2 full-season internships for the 2014 season.

Market Gardener Program

This internship is designed to create urban farmers who are interested in taking their veggies to market, while also working collectively to design and manage a typical scale community garden plot.  Beginning in early March, students will embark on a full season of running a small scale urban garden market, from seedlings to garden to market to preservation, ending in late October.  Bringing the farm internship to the city!

Schoolyard Gardener Program

Schoolyard gardens are a growing innovation in alternative education spaces. As a space, gardens offer kids the chance to take ownership and feel proud of the way in which their school grounds look. Not only this, but we are seeing immense opportunities for offering regular curriculum classes in the garden, especially topics such as science, art, and health.

This program is ideal for someone who is interested in working with youth, but who is also motivated to plan and manage a garden for an entire season… no small task!

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis – so act fast – as space is limited!

And stay tuned for details about other upcoming events, workshops and mini-internships!
