2018 Inner City Farms Urban Farming Internship

We are now accepting internship applications for the 2018 urban farming season! Apply! Join us!!

 

Inner City Farms is looking to build another amazing farm team for the 2018 season. If you want to farm our city, do consider the experience. We want to get our team sorted in good time so please apply soon!

ICF front yard farm

 

It’s a volunteer position that requires a season-long commitment. We work hard and we have a lot of fun. And we eat well. Successful applicants will farm alongside our Head Farmer (me!) Camil one day a week (minimum requirement). Our work days are about 8 hours, we start early and we end mid-afternoon. We run from May 1 to Dec 1 (roughly). All of our farm sites are in the City of Vancouver.

Our farm is nearly 10 years old and we have been running the internship since 2012. We are a non-profit society with goals of gently and constructively resisting the damage caused by our dominant, industrial food system. We have built a network of front and backyard “farms” throughout Vancouver that we aim to farm sustainably. We grow beautiful food. We run a CSA program and supply some of the best chefs in town with our produce. We collaborate with all sorts of other interesting people running interesting projects. It’s a sustainability and community-building project grounded in local food growing, sound good?

All levels of farm experience are considered. Note: If you are a UBC student, you may be able to earn academic credit for the internship through our affiliation with the Faculty Land and Food Systems (please mention any interest in this in your application & I will provide more info).

Thanks,
