Seeking Local Food Month Project Manager

 
Farms at Work and Transition Town Peterborough have partnered since 2015 in bringing Local Food Month to Peterborough during the month of September. Our goal has been to build connections between consumers and local farmers, improving food literacy and achieving community economic development for the benefit of the urban and rural community. Details of past years’ events may be found at http://www.localfoodmonthptbo.ca and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/localfoodmonthptboc

For the 2017 season, we have received funding to hire a Local Food Month Project Manager who will have overall management and co-ordination responsibility for Local Food Month, but with a special emphasis on fundraising, marketing and promotion.

 

We are Hiring!

Are you our future part-time Stewardship Coordinator? The Stewardship Coordinator will be responsible for providing support for the East Central Farm Stewardship Collaborative (ECFSC), and also for some of Farms at Work’s own farm stewardship initiatives. If so, you will work independently, and as part of a team, to achieve the primary objective of improving environmental outcomes on farmland in the region, keeping water clean, farmland healthy and growing ecological diversity on farms.
