New Roots SLC is an urban agriculture outfit operated by the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City, and we’re in search of an innovative and level-headed program manager who takes the long view when solving systemic problems. This is a job that is surrounded by diversity and is in charge of a close-knit creative staff that's addressing food access barriers in Utah.
The new manager will inherit a program currently delivering on a handful of federal and state grants that are strengthening urban ag in the Salt Lake Valley by linking 150-plus new Americans with community gardens and farm land.
Our farm is planning a land expansion within two years, and we need someone to help shepherd that into reality. In addition, we run a farmers market in a large food desert and we're at the forefront of a nascent farm to school movement in Utah. Yeah, we've got a lot of important irons in the fire. But if you think you'd be a good fit, know that you've got a clever and dedicated team that will have your back. For a full job description and to apply go HERE.[chm.tbe.taleo.net]
