Hydroponic Agriculture Internship

About InstaGreen

InstaGreen is an urban farming startup in Barcelona. We are taking the first steps to build a global business that provides the healthiest and freshest local urban food, in a sustainable and commercially viable way.

Simply put: we grow food in the city.

We cultivate microgreens, herbs and leafy vegetables in so-called hydroponic systems. When our plants are ready for consumption, we bring them to our clients (usually restaurants) where they are placed in our special InstaGreen displays until they are harvested for consumption.

Agricultural internship

We are looking for green hands and brilliant brains for the cultivation part of our hydroponic vertical urban farming startup in Barcelona. We now have a functional pilot system where we cultivate our plants with success and we have working prototypes of the small displays that we place at restaurants, to keep the plants alive there. We are looking for someone who can help us with the cultivation and the day to day researches that come with growing food in such a new way.

We have internship space availble in the last semester of 2018 and in the 1st semester of 2019
