 JSHC Growing Green Summer Fellowship

Are you interested in community gardening, small-scale sustainable urban agriculture, or landscaping and need a summer job? If so, apply for the JSHC Growing Green Summer Fellowship here. Previous fellowship recipients have worked with Toledo GROWS and the Toledo Botanical Garden to learn hands-on the fundamentals of greenhouse and garden operations as well as see the inner workings of successful nonprofit organizations. Priority is given to Honors students in good standing with the JSHC.

This summer fellowship is available to work with a local not-for-profit organization involved with community gardens, small-scale urban agriculture, and related activities. The JSHC has a long-standing collaboration with Toledo GROWS for this fellowship. Toledo Grows (TG) supports more than 120 community gardens in the Toledo metro area, runs the Toledo Grown Food Hub, sponsors workshops in producing vegetables as well as meeting health standards, and coordinates with other organizations to promote small-scale sustainable urban agriculture. TG maintains full-scale greenhouse and small-scale farming operations at their facility on Oneida Street.

The experience for summer fellows will go beyond planting seeds and pulling weeds. The students will work directly with the staff of TG to learn greenhouse and garden operations as well as coordinate an outreach program for community gardens in the Toledo metro area. Many of the hands-on activities for the student fellows will be scheduling, coordinating, and supervising volunteer activities for the greenhouse and garden operations. For example, TG annually benefits from two weeks of a work crew from AmeriCorps - but this requires supervision. Additionally, the student may be directly involved with outreach to the network of community gardens through the summer growing season and with other local organizations featuring similar missions. Preliminary training for applicants in greenhouse and garden operations is available starting in March.

The fellowship pays $10/hour for 20 hours per week for 8 or 10 weeks, for a total of $1,600 or $2,000 for the summer, respectively. For more information, please contact Dr. David Krantz (david.krantz@utoledo.edu).
