Looking to hone your French while farming? The Montreal community food hub, Santropol Roulant, is hiring two interns for their 2017  season. Santropol Roulant uses food as a vehicle to break social isolation between generations. Creatively and collaboratively, the organization seeks to strengthen and nourish local community with their novel approaches to active community engagement, youth leadership, food security and social inclusion.

about the farm:

As part of our mission of building a food system that is healthy, just, and sustainable, Santropol Roulant farms a 3- acre plot of agriculturally zoned and organically certified land in Senneville. This land supports the production of fresh produce for our kitchen programs, our organic baskets and our weekly farmer’s markets. Initiatives such as our solidarity baskets, subsidized markets and meals-on-wheels contribute to making organic produce accessible to all, regardless of socio-economic status, level of mobility, or degree of autonomy.
