ZENGER FARM is a 501(c)3 nonprofit working urban farm that models, promotes, and educates about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development, and access to good food for all.
We encourage people of color, women, LGBTQ people, religious minorities, recent immigrants, differently able and applicants from different generational, economic and educational backgrounds to apply because the key to serving our mission of providing access to good food for all is to be inclusive to those marginalized in our food system.
Farming operations at Zenger Farm include four acres of vegetable crops, fruit orchards and poultry. Zenger Farm is a small-scale diversified production farm growing for a 150-member CSA, restaurants and for Zenger Farm programming. The core of our farm crew consists of 3-4 farming interns mentored very closely by two experienced farm managers. Farming Interns are also an integral part of the Zenger Farm community, working at times alongside education and community engagement staff as well as leading volunteers.

farming interns receive 40 hours of classroom instruction. Farming interns rotate responsibilities to
gain experience and understanding in all aspects of managing and operating the farm. Rotating
responsibilities are comprehensive and all-inclusive. We are proud that so many of our past full-season
farming interns currently have successful farming careers. Between 2010 and 2016, 22 full-season
farming interns graduated from our program and 18 of them farmed during the 2017 growing
