CitySprouts’ Summer Internship provides young teens with an intensive month growing and harvesting food in an urban garden, expanding their first-hand experience preparing and eating healthy food and fostering a strong connection to their natural urban environment.

Each intern is part of a team of 10-13 youth based in their own school or neighborhood CitySprouts garden. CitySprouts interns spend 4 mornings a week for 4 weeks with their CitySprouts Garden Coordinator and intern team in the school garden or on field trips to farms or community service organizations in the Boston area.
