Green Village Initiative is a nonprofit in Bridgeport, Connecticut whose mission is to create social, economic and environmental change with its urban farm, 13 community gardens, 24 school gardens and youth leadership program. Through our work, we promote and educate about healthy eating, agriculture and gardening.
Reservoir Community Farm, GVI’s urban farm, is a 1.7-acre farm located in Bridgeport’s North End neighborhood. The farm’s primary focus is to educate the community on growing pesticide-free, nutritious vegetables in an urban setting, and produce is sold to our neighbors at affordable prices at our on-site farm stand. RCF is also a community gathering space, and we work closely with our neighbors and the city to provide a safe, engaging environment.
Reservoir Community Farm is seeking a productive, energetic Farmer’s Assistant. The ideal candidate will have an understanding of and some experience with organic growing practices. This candidate should also enjoy working and sharing their knowledge with volunteers and youth interns while remaining focused on farm tasks and projects.
