We are family owned certified organic indoor hydroponic farm growing microgreens and herbs, delivered directly to major grocery stores all around the Bay Area (Whole Foods and more). This is an ideal internship for anyone studying horticulture, sustainable farming, environmental science or related areas. In the midst of a drought hydroponic farming is getting a lot of attention for its incredibly minimal use of water and land. Come join us for this exciting movement in farming! We offer 2-month & 4-month unpaid internships that will earn you a certificate of completion stating the areas of this field you have successfully learned. All interns start with harvest days, which occur Mondays, Wednesday, Thursdays and Sundays every week. As you move through the program we will teach you: cutting/harvesting, planting, crop maintenance, hydroponic systems maintenance, and much, much more. We take a limited amount of interns at any given time, so that we can give you the training needed. In order to secure your spot, you must schedule an initial time to come in for a 4-hour shift on one of the harvest days (listed above) so we can see if you’re a good fit here and that we offer what you are wanting. A minimum of 12 hours per week is required for a certificate of completion.
