Internships

Have you ever wanted to learn more about resilient agriculture? This is your chance! Join our Community Garden Intern program! Internships are collaboratively developed between you and our program to be mutually beneficial.

Internships allow individuals to cultivate experience with growing food and supporting food security efforts. Interns will gain experience with growing annual and perennial foods using resilient agriculture techniques, teaching in non-traditional settings, leading volunteer groups, and organizing community-based efforts. A person in this position can expect to learn how gardening connects to nutrition, health, and food security. Interns may develop a special project to enhance the community garden and surrounding park, or expand programming.

At the Dr. John Wilson Community Garden food is grown by private renters, and for donation to Bounty and Soul (a non-profit partner who shares produce and wellness programming with local people without charge). This garden uses organic methods, practices double-digging, and incorporates biodynamic, resilient agriculture and permaculture principles. With over 100 fruit and nut trees, a native plant trail, rainwater catchment, and special projects abounding, this garden is a great place to learn just about any gardening practice you can imagine.
