Urban Farm Internships/Apprenticeships at ECO City Farms


ECO City Farms, a Certified Naturally Grown urban nonprofit teaching farm with two locations in Prince George's County, MD, is looking for interns and apprentices for the Spring/Summer 2016 season.  These positions 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. Both Internships and Apprenticeships run in two 6-month cycles: a spring/summer season (March-September) and a fall/winter season (September-March).

Internships -- are for those who want to get a feel for urban farming without making a huge commitment, and require 6 work hours per week. Interns are unpaid, but receive in-kind opportunities for workshops, courses, and farm visits.

Apprenticeships -- are for those who’ve demonstrated a long-term commitment to farming and require 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.
