Position Title: Farm Manager
Start Date: June, 2016
For Complete Job Description:
Hope Farms is a 7.5-acre urban farm dedicated to improving community health by providing direct access to healthy and affordable fresh fruits and vegetables.
Located in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston, Texas, the farm will serve as a valuable resource for local residents and the city at large by providing access to fresh produce, nutrition education programs and job training for military veterans.
Breaking ground in April 2016, the launch of Hope Farms serves as a complementary and critical layer to expand Recipe for Success Foundation’s mission and address community health in a powerful and new way. The farm will use intensive, organic methods to generate significant food crops in the midst of one of Houston’s recognized “food deserts.” Incorporating the Rolling Green Market and the Veteran Farmer Training program, Hope Farms is the foundation of the future Hope Farms Co-op that will facilitate, promote and support a network of small urban growers to serve the broader market.
