Get Involved

Interns harvesting greens at the UCSC Farm.

Join CASFS in advancing an ecologically sustainable and socially just food system—there are many ways to get involved. 

If you're interested in joining the CASFS team, check out our job opportunities for perennial (permanent) and student staff.

We offer for-credit internships to UCSC students through the Environmental Studies Department. Undergraduates can also get involved with the Food Systems Working Group (FSWG), a group of UCSC students, staff, faculty, and community members working to bring sustainably grown food produced by socially responsible operations to campus dining halls and through a collaborative process, promote education and awareness of our food system. 

Community members can get involved with CASFS and help support our work by volunteering or joining the Friends of the UCSC Farm & Garden. The Friends are a community-based group whose membership fees and volunteer efforts support a variety of education and scholarship programs. The Friends focus their efforts on community outreach, Farm & Garden facility improvements, and public education.

Other ways to get involved include participating in CASFS events and workshops and purchasing CASFS produce and flowers at our Farm & Garden Market Cart or through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.
