Cultivating Community Grow Interns

Cultivating Community
Portland, ME

Cultivating Community's mission is to strengthen communities by growing food, preparing youth leaders and new farmers, and promoting social and environmental justice. We use our community food work as an engine for high-impact youth and community development programs that reconnect people to the natural and social systems that sustain us all.

We are growing sustainable communities through utilizing organic, sustainable practices to grow food in our community, school gardens and at partnering farms that feeds those among us who are most vulnerable. Cultivating Community is based in Portland, Maine.

The GROW interns are enthusiastic, dedicated youth alums of the Youth Growers program working within our community food work. The GROW interns work together and with a range of Cultivating Community staff to take on projects in farming, teaching others, and marketing small enterprises at new farmers' markets. Youth explore farming, community building, teaching and sharing experiences with other youth, and how to run a small business, through a spring and summer of intensive, hands-on work.
