The Farm Assistant will be primarily focused on volunteer group facilitation and the day-to-day management of our urban farm, which consists of six acres including fields, a small orchard, compost system, and two greenhouses.

The Farm Assistant will help ensure that volunteer engagement at Veggielution is safe and welcoming to volunteers, interns, and program participants.
