The team at Green Athens welcomes academic partners who are willing to assist and learn about how an urban gardening initiative operates. There is an element of labour which often seems to curtail "green" development, so if you aren't afraid of work and welcome the reward and fulfilment that creating greeen spaces in the city brings, this is the internship/work experience for you!


Green Athens offers internships and exchanges with students and faculty members in the fields of Applied art and Design, Agriculture, Green-tech Engineering, and Sociology,  (just to name a few).
