    I’m a huge fan.
    I’m an urban farmer of sorts.
    I would love the opportunity to work for inhabitat. Im based in Gowanus,Brooklyn. Professionally, I am a photographer and educator.
    My poor attempt @ blogging my urban farming endeavors is below. I haven’t kept up with my blog as much as I had wished to but, the fact still remains that my family and I have harvested most of our food. I have grown corn, pumkin and many other veggies and fruit on a Brooklyn roof, that in itself is pretty awesome.
    I also follow you guys on twitter. I am @jinitachiquita
    Thanks in advance for your time.

    i would love to write a few opinion and observation peices about the economy now and your interests. i am still in high school, how ever, so i would not have enough time to be a full time blogger. i am really interested in writing certain stories or essays for you which i can email you or send right to the blog, ocasionally.
    this opportunity would help me gain experience, because i am looking to get a job in journalism. i am excited to learn more about this company, for i am allready flabergasted with excitement from brousing and would love to maybe even branch out to my community and school!

    i feel really strongly about the enviroment and have been involved in alot of activities that can relate to your site. it is my dream to work for a company like you full time in the future, but this can help me gain experience and just learn. even if i was an intern-type of thing? i work really hard and have great ideas and solutions for problems and such!

    Bhawna & Karlos & Tom & Everyone-

    We work with writers from all around the world. Anyone who reads our site regularly should know this. We currently have contributors in Australia, England, China, India, Germany and all over the US. We will always consider good writers from other countries. However, these particular job descriptions that I am posting right now are all for full-time business partners who I need to work with face-to-face every day out of our US office. These job are not something that can be done remotely. If you want to write for Inhabitat, please get in touch with Emily Pilloton, and send your resume and writing samples to her. These current posts are full-time office jobs – they are not writing jobs.

    Thank you!

    And I would be interested in doing a danish based inhabitat. Looks like you will need to go worldwide with all the potential interest. How better to really lift the world into a sustainable 21st century?

    OK, you couldn’t have stated it any clearer, but I have to ask. You aren’t looking for any contributors in say…North Carolina?

    Meilleurs vœux !

    Sorry Tom – for now it is New York and San Francisco only. When we plan to expand into Belgium, we’ll get in touch!

    You don’t want to open a Inhabitat in Belgium? I’d be very interested in that kind of position 😉
