The application window for our Urban Farming Internship, 2021 Season has closed. Please check back next year!

Common Ground (CG) grows 10,000 lbs of fresh produce annually, including vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers. We also raise laying hens, ducks, turkeys, goats + sheep. Farm products go to our Cafeteria, Farm Share, Mobile Market, + more! Farm work will be done with the Farm Director, Farm Manager, Food Justice Education Coordinator and high school youth. Interns will gain in person experience and lesson based learning in all aspects of planting, growing, maintaining a diversified sustainable vegetable operation, and small scale livestock management.

Volunteers make Common Ground work. We invite you to share your hands, minds, and hearts — and to help us change lives.

If you’d like to get involved, please read the descriptions below, then complete the Volunteer Inquiry Form. Thanks for being part of our work!
