Volunteer Food Growing Traineeships

Volunteer Food Growing Traineeships
Location: Stepney City Farm, London

Stepney City Farm wishes to recruit six trainees for its Volunteer Food Growing Trainees programme. We seek enthusiastic adults who enjoy working outdoors and with other people, and who are keen to gain the knowledge and experience of growing sustainable food in the community. This is an exciting opportunity to acquire practical horticultural skills that could lead to paid employment or further training.

Working alongside our two experienced horticulture grower-trainers, trainees will learn all aspects of running an urban market garden, plant nursery and plant shop within a working City Farm.

All trainees will be required to commit to volunteering at Stepney City Farm for one day a week (every Wednesday, 10am-4pm) from April to September 2019, plus attend four evening training sessions. (dates tbc).
