At the City of Sydney our people are our most important asset and central to achieving our exciting and ambitious Sustainable Sydney 2030 - developing a green, global and connected city.
Sydney City Farm Program Facilitator (working 43.5 hours per fortnight, roster includes weekend work)
Are you passionate about sustainability and urban agriculture? Do you enjoy a balance between working in a hands-on outdoor environment and being office based? Are you good with people and an excellent communicator? Do you have the ability to manage a busy workload while ensuring attention to detail?
We have an exciting part time opportunity available to join the Sydney City Farm team based at St Peters. You could work with the local community and be part of our challenging and rewarding project.
City farms are being set up throughout Australia and the world, as people want to learn more about their food and the connections between paddock and plate. We are developing Sydney City Farm as a place to learn about urban agriculture and sustainable food production.
We are seeking an energetic, dedicated natural collaborator to lead operational aspects at the farm site including cropping and orchard production, plant nursery function, coordinating volunteers, and organising farmers' market offer.
You will ideally have tertiary qualifications and / or extensive experience in horticulture, food production and nursery practices; along with experience in volunteer coordination.
Do you want to be part of something challenging and rewarding? Are you passionate about serving our community? The City of Sydney might be the right career move for you.
