Intern With Us
NEW! 2019 intern applications open!
We're looking for the next generation of food leaders who want meaningful volunteer intern experience.
Do you want to hang out with awesome urban gardening warriors and gain stand-out community organization skills? Then intern with us! Our interns participate in all our programs and generally learn everything we do, but new this year, we will be looking for interns to help with specific programs at BYG. Spend your spring organizing our big spring event, leading outreach to gardeners, or working directly with our youth and adult participants in our gardens.
