Finance Committee Member
The GardenWorks Project
The GardenWorks Project (www.gardenworksproject.org) is a western Chicagoland area non-profit that fights hunger and food insecurity through food growing practices.
The organization is currently recruiting members for its finance committee to assist leadership as the organization continues to grow in impact within the region. The term for the committee is one-year with four quarterly meetings (via Zoom). If you have experience working with a non-profit, or skills related to budget management and/or organizational and fiscal policies, consider a great opportunity to get involved in a unique organization within the region.
About The GardenWorks Project

Mission: The GardenWorks Project empowers, educates, and promotes organic suburban agriculture to improve the wellbeing of our community, the environment, and families facing food insecurity. We support all gardeners in their efforts to grow and prepare food for themselves and their neighbors in need.
Vision: Our community nourished by gardeners empowered to grow and share food.
We help families who would otherwise be unable to grow their own food because of financial need, disability, or advanced age. The GardenWorks Project works with area food pantries to identify families who are both in need of food assistance and want to grow their own food. Our dedicated group of volunteers make it happen.
We welcome volunteers to help us build gardens in May and June of each year, and serve on our board of directors or committees.
