Urban Farm Internship


Urban Farms of Central Ohio (UFCO), a program rooted in the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, and Hoover YMCA Park Learning Garden are currently seeking interns for our 2016 internship program. This program offers interns the opportunity to gain both experience in small-scale farming practices and exposure to working within Columbus’s urban neighborhoods.

Urban Farms of Central Ohio seeks to turn underutilized and vacant lots into financially viable urban farms using sustainable growing methods while building civic engagement and providing communities access to fresh produce and educational opportunities. In its fourth year of operations, UFCO will be growing vegetable and fruit on over 3 acres at the Clarfield Urban Farm, located in the Marion Franklin neighborhood of Columbus, as well as developing operations at a second farm site, the Wheatland Urban Farm, located in the Hilltop neighborhood. Interns will work side by side with staff and volunteers, and will be primarily placed at the Clarfield Farm site.

The Hoover YMCA Park Learning Garden is a 1.5 acre organic farm located in Lockbourne, Ohio. The Garden was established in 2011 as a cooperative effort between the YMCA of Central Ohio, Local Matters and the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. The Learning Garden grows organic produce for our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and for local food pantries and non-profits which serve families in need of food or job training. The Learning Garden is also an integral part of the YMCA summer youth camp. Campers, age 7-15, spend 2-3 hours per week in the garden, learning about growing fresh vegetables and assisting with garden operations.
