City Sprouts Urban Farming Internship: An Opportunity for Driven Youth
City Sprouts (www.omahasprouts.org) is launching its 2018 Urban Farming Internship with applications now open.
Entering its 6th year, this paid internship offers young adults ages 16-20 training in agriculture, horticulture, culinary arts, public health and life skills, all while being immersed in a dynamic and supportive work environment, where every day is a new adventure. In 2018, City Sprouts will host 12 interns at City Sprouts (4002 Seward Street) and 4 interns at City Sprouts South (1815 N Street).
City Sprouts interns work as a team to assist with regular crop maintenance including planting, watering, weeding and harvesting at the Decatur Urban Farm or City Sprouts South garden. Interns market produce and other goods at the weekly City Sprouts Farm Stand and promote City Sprouts in the community through site visits, school visits, presentations and events. Our interns get the opportunity to work with diverse groups or individuals in indoor and outdoor settings. Interns learn about healthful cooking and have the chance to cook and serve meals to the team and guests.
Applications became available on Monday, March 19, and interviews will take place on Saturday, April 14.
