NEXT-GEN FARMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

NEXT-GEN FARMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The Next-Gen Farmer Internship Program is a pathway to the forefront of urban farming. No farming experience is necessary to apply—just the passion and dedication to play an important role in getting local, real food to people in cities. The year-long position kicks off with a period of hands-on training in our hydroponic, controlled-climate farms and is supplemented with ongoing education throughout the year. Following initial training, farmers are responsible for growing quality food on a consistent basis to meet customer demand—with the guidance of our Head Farmer. The role also includes representing CityFarm at customer-focused engagements and storefront, giving farmers the opportunity to connect directly with consumers.

 


Training, duties, and responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Seeding, transplanting, harvesting, packaging
  • General maintenance of the farms
  • Data management and record keeping
  • Production management and crop scheduling
  • Growing quality food on a consistent basis, to meet customer demand
  • Representing CityFarm through customer-facing experiences
  • Full participation in project-based learning experiences
Please note, this is internship involves physical tasks, so farmers may require to lift 20kg and stand for 8 hours.
