Become a farm intern with The Cutting Veg

Do you want to learn to grow your own food, or take a step towards becoming a farmer?

The Cutting Veg organic farm offers season-long, part-time farming internships, in which you can immerse yourself in the world of organic agriculture.  Located in Sutton, close to Toronto, this internship is ideal for people who are rooted in the city, yet ready to take a significant step into the world of veggie farming.  Through farm work and discussion, Interns will be exposed to various aspects of organic agriculture, including plant propagation, plant care, soil preparation and health, pest-management, green-manuring, and planning & marketing. As a potential Intern, you must be willing to commit two full days per week (on-farm from 6:30am-4:30pm) from the beginning of May to the end of October, a

nd be excited to receive agricultural skills, knowledge, and organic veggies, in exchange for your labour.

As this farm is not residential, no accommodation is available on-site.
