During the pandemic, more families and individuals began to grow their own food, empowering themselves to slow down, connect to the earth, and nourish their own families. And now more than ever, we can see and feel the fragilities of our current food system. New Leaf Foods supports the health and well-being of the people of Greater Green Bay by promoting healthy food access and education and by cooperating throughout Northeast Wisconsin to build a thriving local food system in a clean environment. Specifically through our Garden Blitz program, we work to address healthy food access by gathering volunteers to build and install raised bed gardens throughout the community. To date, we have installed over 700 gardens in the Green Bay area! This year, we are dedicated to installing gardens for organizations that empower Black and Indigenous communities, as well as people living with disabilities. We feel passionately about continuing the momentum of the return of victory gardens, even long after the pandemic is not so prevalent in our lives. If you feel passionately about changing our food system, consider joining our team of volunteers. We can’t do it without you!
We are looking for community-minded individuals to fulfill the newsletter coordinator assistant role. In this role, some responsibilities include:
Maintain communication with Blitz planning team members to organize newsletter content
Develop a schedule and/or calendar for monthly newsletter pieces
Author newsletter and/or blog pieces
Research current and relevant topics to include in newsletter and/or blog
Work with current newsletter coordinator to organize, maintain internal communication, and to develop a schedule
