Wondering how you can love in a greener and more conscious way? Looking to be more sensual with life in general? Plants can help open our hearts and attain slower, deeper, more peaceful experiences.

We are happy once again to be offering two full season internships! We are currently accepting application for both streams. Full details and applications can be found at our website – http://www.cityfarmschool.com/

Market Gardener Internship

The Market Gardener Program 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 Gardeners

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 in topics such as science, art, and health.
