Summer NeighborWorks VISTA, CHWC Farm Volunteer Coordinator
Eating local helps to lower our carbon footprint, but growing our own produce and herbs and learning how to cook with fresh produce and preserve food also helps to lower our household food budget. The Farm Volunteer Coordinator will serve as a bridge between our highly productive urban farm and our focus on financial literacy by helping us form beneficial community partnerships to increase programming opportunities and recruit and manage volunteers who sign up to help us plant, weed and harvest fruits and vegetables at our farm.

Please note:
This listing is currently not accepting applications.

Member Duties : Having a Summer Associate would enable CHWC to recruit even more volunteers to increase production at the farm and provide a connection between the financial literacy focus and the farm through additional workshops and trainings, such as gardening at home, cooking with fresh produce and preserving food and drying herbs, which will teach participants how to save money by lowering their food budget. Having a Summer Associate would complement the efforts of our contract partner, KC Healthy Kids, and provide a resource to conduct more useful evaluation by gathering data on volunteers’ experience and suggestions for additional workshops and trainings.
