Wage: $18/hr; 40 hrs/week
Location: Thunder Bay, ON
Closing Date: Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018
At first glance, Roots to Harvest may appear to be an urban agriculture-focused organization, but we encourage applicants to look much deeper than that. Roots to Harvest is first and foremost about working with people—in particular, youth and young adults. We seek to create meaningful opportunities to employ and engage young people who face barriers to employment and/or struggle academically. We use food and agriculture as the medium to connect with the community and each other. We work hard to find the delicate balance between challenge and achievement in all of our programs and projects.
Roots to Harvest is a small, grassroots organization that is still maturing and coming into its own. We are a small staff and every position involves elements of organizational development and maintenance. We aim to foster a culture that is transparent, inclusive, progressive, and productive. As staff, we work collaboratively, we work hard, we do what needs to be done, and we try to keep the big picture in mind.
If you prefer to work alone, dislike ambiguity, and adhere to a very strict schedule, then working with Roots to Harvest probably isn’t right for you. But if you’re looking for a fun, fast-paced, multifaceted, energizing, and rewarding work environment that will push you every single day, then we want to hear from you!
