From the Regional Environmental Council [REC]:
Dear REC Members and Supporters,
Are you a loyal customer at our farmers markets who is passionate about local fruits and vegetables and building community?
Are you a veteran Earth Day Coordinator who has been a part of every single one of our last 25 Earth Day Clean Ups?
Are you looking for ways to meet new people and get involved in Worcester? We need you!
The REC is currently looking to fill 2 positions for our community farmers markets program (Main South, Beaver Brook and Mobile Farmers Markets.)
We are looking for people who will help take our markets to the next level, who believe that access to healthy, affordable, culturally appropriate foods is a right …
… [people] who are passionate about direct community engagement and who have or are willing to learn the skills to market, organize and develop our business model of markets.
We are especially looking for people who are from and representative of the neighborhoods we work in who can literally and figuratively be in the driver’s seat of our program.
If you are or know someone who might be a good fit, contact Casey Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share our job description and help us spread the word!
For readers who already have a great and rewarding job, we need you too! Our 26th Annual Earth Day Clean Ups are right around the corner and we are looking for energetic site coordinators who can lead a group of volunteers in cleaning a corner of our city as we welcome spring.
For those who have time and energy to give, but no space to clean up, please sign up as a volunteer and we will connect you to a site.
It may seem like the city is still frozen but here at the REC, we are revving our engines for a full and exciting spring.
Seedlings are growing in the greenhouse and our hearts and minds are focused on neighborhood clean ups, garden builds, and farmers markets.
The only piece we are missing to make this great work happen is YOU!
