Metropolitan Farms is a startup company building a commercial urban farm on Chicago's west side. We will grow fresh fish and produce year round in a large aquaponic system within a controlled environment greenhouse. Aquaponics links aquaculture and hydroponic growing methods in a recirculating system. We seek interns to aid in completion of the farm as well as starting operations. Interns will work with advanced agricultural technologies, plant and harvest crops, and develop entrepreneurial business skills. Interns will experience the advent of a disruptive agricultural business model through the largest farm facility of its kind in the city.
