Volunteering

Urban Tree Connection is a grassroots organization, and we rely on the partnership of community volunteers to make our work possible. Last year, 978 volunteers contributed more than 7,000 hours of their time at our farms and garden sites. These volunteers not only assist UTC and the communities where we work -- typically, they find the experience personally inspiring, with many people coming back to help again and again. For more information, or to schedule a volunteer project, please email at info@urbantreeconnection.org.

We also see volunteers who possess particular skills -- such as web design, grant writing, or marketing -- that could enhance the work of Urban Tree Connection. From time to time, we also have special office projects such as filing or data entry that could be completed by a volunteer. To tell us about your skills or to find out what special projects may be coming up, please email us at info@urbantreeconnection.org.





Apprenticeships/Internships

Farming Apprenticeship

Farm Apprentices will receive 1:1 training with our farm staff in sustainable vegetable production along with a share in the harvest. Apprenticeships can be structured for 3 to 9 months during the growing season.

Grants & Communications Internship

UTC is currently seeking an intern that can support with grant writing, communications, and social media. We are seeking 6 month to year-long interns.
