Based in West Oakland, we partner with low and fixed income communities, communities of color, youth, and elders throughout Alameda County to create a more just and equitable food system. The Farm & Park Assistant will help increase our capacity by researching, identifying, and helping to implement improvements to the Farm, Greenhouse and Park. This person will help maximize food production within our 1.4 acre space, streamline our greenhouse seeding processes, and identify ways that we can better utilize our space and volunteers. This VISTA will work with staff to identify and implement innovative urban farming practices and help recruit and support volunteers . Duties will include research and implementation of Farm and Park infrastructure improvements, identifying improvements for volunteer engagement, and codifying our processes and procedures.
