Who We Are: Common Good City Farm (CGCF) is an urban farm and education center growing food for and with low-income residents in Washington, DC and providing educational opportunities for all people that help increase food security, improve health, and contribute to environmental sustainability. Our Mission is to grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs. Our Vision is to serve as a replicable model of a community-based urban food system.
CGCF’s programs provide hands-on training in food production, healthy eating and environmental sustainability. CGCF’s presence in a multi-cultural, multi-racial, multi-generational community creates an opportunity for people from all walks of life to spend time learning about healthy food, gaining access to it, and exercising in the process of growing it.
What We Seek: We are looking for a well-rounded and outgoing individual who brings strong youth development background and is interested in and committed to the food justice movement. We seek individuals with a strong desire to become fully invested in our enterprise during their time with us. We hold high expectations for our youth and in order to foster their potential we require our Crew Leaders to be strong role models. Ideal candidates possess enthusiasm for working with youth, interest in Common Good City Farm’s mission, a strong work ethic, and a good sense of humor. While our organization is deeply committed to building a sustainable food system, we do not require candidates to be well versed in agriculture or the food production system. Show that you can bring energy, and an open mind to the table and we will teach you the rest!
This is a very competitive position, and Common Good City Farm strives to maintain a diverse and inclusive team. Candidates from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Full posting here.
