Looking to take your first steps into the world of urban agriculture?
This volunteer opportunity allows participants to take part in growing and harvesting food on a community engaged farm. Our innovative Schoolyard Farms, the first of their kind in Canada, provide an opportunity to interact with a diversity of individuals through food. Interns will gain hands-on experience in harvesting produce, field preparation, and crop maintenance under the supervision of our Farm Manager. As interns become skilled they will be empowered to act as leaders for volunteers and students on the farm.
We are seeking four Schoolyard Farm Interns to join our team for the 2015 growing season.
- Harvest, process, and package produce for a variety of distribution channels
- Crop maintenance: transplant, thin, weed, and manage pests
- Field preparation: bed amendment, bed creation, and season extension
- Engage and lead community members, students, and drop-in volunteers
