Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities and Internships

GrowNYC Greenmarkets, Fresh Food Boxes, and Farmstands remain open as essential food access points for all New Yorkers. Regularly scheduled volunteer opportunities at GrowNYC have been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19, at this time we are only in need of volunteers to assist GrowNYC Staff as they implement required safety protocols. If you are willing and able, we welcome your help as we work to support farmers and create safe food access for New Yorkers.

Looking for corporate or individual volunteer opportunities at GrowNYC? Head over to our volunteer page. GrowNYC has many opportunities for volunteers to dig in and improve New York City's environment block by block and community by community.  Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

Please register for one-off volunteer opportunities here.

Jobs with Farmers & Producers

If you are interested in working for a Greenmarket farmer or producer, either at their market stand or as an intern on the farm, please see the job listing, and also follow the NYC Greenmarket Employee Resource page on Facebook for additional opportunities. 
*Note - Greenmarket farmers and producers operate independent businesses. Individuals hired by Greenmarket producers are not employees of GrowNYC or Greenmarket. 

In a moment where New Yorkers have turned to parks and gardening to ease the mental and emotional strain the Covid-19 pandemic has taken on residents, when the need for education surrounding nutrition and health couldn’t be more critical, the same nonprofits that make green space and nutrition education possible are in danger of going under, while vital city agencies like the New York City Parks Department’s GreenThumb program are facing severe budget cuts.
