Submitted 4 years ago by Dan Trepanier 

Why Fresh City? This is a defining moment for the food movement. Can we chart a more sustainable path to making food? Can everyone enjoy healthy food? Will powerful and entrenched interests prevail over the health and well being of people and planet? Join us and be counted amongst those trying to change the very way we think about food.


As an Intern you will report to and work directly with Ran Goel, founder of Fresh City. An experienced investment lawyer, Ran believes in the power of city farming to change how people think about food. He is a Mentor! 

Fresh City is a city farm based in Toronto. We organically farm almost five acres right in the city. Our mission is to create and perfect new ways of connecting makers and eaters. We believe that a little more intimacy in our food system will go a long way. We deliver food to thousands of Torontonians each week and hope to deliver to thousands more through the box program. We have also run farming and preserving workshops for thousands of Torontonians.

Who You are: With two growing seasons under our belt, we are looking to expand. We are looking for someone who is:

  • Passionate about local, organic food 
  • Outgoing: You will be telling our story at various events so you really need to love people. You need to be positive and upbeat and non-judgmental. 
  • Reliable & Professional: For the thousands of people you will meet at various events and at our farm, you will often be the only Fresh City person they meet. We need you to be there and be professional. 
  • Attention to detail: You will be responsible for event logistics, have a schedule that changes from week to week and be representing Fresh City and its member farmers to the world.
  • Adaptable & Dynamic: We are a small, nimble and growing company. That means your responsibilities will sometimes shift in response to growth, challenges or opportunities. 

Be a High Demand Intern as your responsibilities include; 

  • Events: Represent Fresh City at various fairs and events; handle all logistics for each event, including coordinating volunteers and other staff, ensuring printed material available etc. 
  • Social Media, Online Marketing and Web Reputation: Help execute our social media outreach across all major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Linked in. 
  • Marketing material: Create, print (where applicable) and distribute marketing material in a cost-effective fashion.
