Intern with Us

with us

For the past 20 years, CNGF has hosted college interns from institutions throughout California, as well as internationally.

CNGF’s internship program provides students and graduates the opportunity to cultivate skills that are not taught in the traditional classroom and gain real world experience. Working within a team, interns have the opportunity to develop their critical thinking, coming up with innovative solutions to revolutionize how land is used to mitigate the impacts of climate change and food insecurity, while devising ways to educate others, especially the world’s future leaders. Students have the opportunity to become community leaders by leading projects in urban regenerative agriculture, ecological education, and more.

Currently, our intern teams are focusing on:

  1. Regenerative agriculture, including setting up protocols to take baseline measurements in soil analysis, soil organic content, water usage, carbon sequestration, etc. Other disciplines within this team include: soil science, propagation, culinary arts for a plant-based diet, volunteer coordination, and farm stand leadership training.
  2. Grant writing.
  3. Preschool teachers for 2-5 year olds. These are paid positions.
  4. Native garden specialists, urban farmers. These are paid positions. CNGF designs and builds native gardens, food gardens and regenerative farms for private clients, schools and corporations. Our workday is from 6.30am to 2.30pm.
