Internships & Apprenticeships

Farming Apprenticeships & Internships

IMG_3803ECO’s apprenticeships and internships present an immersive, hands-on opportunity to learn about sustainable urban agriculture by working directly with experienced farm staff. In addition, you make a significant contribution to ECO’s programs.

Apprenticeships are for those who’ve demonstrated a long-term commitment to farming.  It is a weekly 16-hour commitment. Apprentices receive a weekly CSA bag, in-kind opportunities for workshops, courses and farm visits, and a weekly travel stipend.  

Internships are for those who want to get a feel for urban farming without making a huge commitment.  It is a weekly 6-hour commitment. Interns are unpaid, but receive in-kind opportunities for workshops, courses, and farm visits.

Both Internships and Apprenticeships run in 2 cycles: a spring/summer season (March-September) and a fall/winter season (September-March).
