ORGANIZATION: CONVIVIUM URBAN FARMSTEAD
Please visit the new page to apply.
Convivium Urban Farmstead grows food on over 7,000 square feet of garden space. This food is used in a variety of ways towards supporting Convivium’s mission of "improving life through food." Some of the food is enjoyed in our restaurant or merchandise, where the proceeds go toward supporting our non-profit outreach programs. Some of the food is handed out as ingredients in our weekly free casserole program. And some of the food is picked by the general public as free, accessible, healthy produce.
Volunteer gardeners are an important part of the labor force that brings that food to life, gets it on to people’s plates, and helps fulfill Convivium’s mission.
A Garden Guru leads small volunteer groups in growing and caring for Convivium’s gardens. Working closely with the Farm Manager, a Garden Guru leads weekly volunteer sessions in varying aspects of tending a garden including preparing beds, planting, mulching, watering, weeding, harvesting, and general garden care. Some gardening experience is helpful, but not as important as a willingness to learn, a welcoming and friendly temperament, and the ability to lead a small group. There is a pre-season orientation, as well as personalized trainings and demonstrations throughout the season for Garden Gurus. We are seeking Garden Gurus who can commit to an entire growing season.
