About Us

Interns

Earth Matter’s internship program is aimed at high school students (ages 14 to 18) that are interested in acquiring practical and theoretical knowledge with respect to composting, animal husbandry, farming, resource recovery, and conservation. If you are interested in learning more about Earth Matter’s internship program, see internships.

In addition to internships open to all high school students, Earth Matter maintains a special relationship with the New York Harbor School, our neighbors on Governors Island. Harbor School interns work on special programs with us, including composting the school’s food waste and curing oyster shells for the Billion Oyster Project, which is repopulating oysters in New York Harbor.
