West Sacramento Urban Farm, Internship Position

Center for Land-Based Learning’s West Sacramento Urban Farm Program seeks 1-3 interns to help run their year round urban farm site at the corner of 5th and C St in West Sacramento (317 5th Street). The 2/3 acre farm site is the pilot site of an expanding program in which vacant lots within the city of West Sacramento are being converted into farm incubators.

Intern duties will vary throughout the season but will entail tasks such as irrigation duties, weeding, planting, harvesting, site maintenance, and other general farm work. Help with creating information fliers, documents and other research may also be available for those interested in helping develop the Urban Farm Program. Also, as product becomes available a weekly farm stand needs manning each Friday from 8am-2pm. Intern(s) would be responsible for set up, selling and breakdown of the farm stand. An interest in communicating with the public, attention to detail and general interest in urban farming is required.

Hours can be anywhere from 8-15 hours per week and can be scheduled with flexibility.
