This is a unique opportunity to work with a recently established, yet quickly growing organization. We have recently installed the first farm on a supermarket in the country, reducing food miles and providing alternative traditional and harmful farm practices. Interns will be participating in innovative projects which have begun to revolutionize the food retail industry.
The mission of VertiFarms is to efficiently provide nutrition where fresh food is unavailable as a result of disasters, climate, insufficient planning, lack of a soil alternative, or where social inequities have resulted in “food deserts.”
At AMPS we value conscious capitalism, benefiting people and the environment, yet maintaining a bottom line. We seek to enable communities to keep food resources flowing within, instead of shipping items in from across the country. We accomplish this by providing nutritious locally grown products and creating green jobs for urban communities.
