ABOUT NEW HAVEN FARMS:

Founded in 2012, New Haven Farms aims to promote health and community development through urban agriculture. Over 50% of our CSA members live within 200% of the federal poverty level, and our shares are distributed on a sliding financial scale. Members receive shares, cooking, nutrition, and farm education on a weekly basis for 16-weeks at our Phoenix Press Farm, located at

15 James St. in New Haven. We currently operate 7 urban farm sites throughout New Haven and plan on expanding to one-acre total growing space in 2014.

 

.75 FTE Garden Education Specialist

I recently accepted a teaching position at Salmon Creek Charter School in Occidental, CA so my position at OUSD is open. They just posted it on Edjoin. Next year it will be 75% due to funding restrictions.

It's an exciting, and challenging job. OUSD is doing lots of important work in school food reform and garden-education. There is tremendous energy in Oakland around food justice and urban agriculture.

Teaching credential and 3+ years of teaching required along with school garden experience.
