Lyndale Community Garden and Food Justice Organizer
Organizador de jardines comunitarios y justicia alimentaria
Part-time (up to 80 hours per month), seasonal, staff person with LNA ($15-17 per hour, beginning March 2021 through harvest). Located in the heart of South Minneapolis, the Lyndale Neighborhood Association is on the front line of issues that make Minneapolis a better place to live, work, play and invest for everyone who calls Minneapolis their home.
The Lyndale Garden and Environment (G&FJ) Organizer will oversee the site development, management and community building at three, local community gardens. The G&FJ Organizer will also work to connect these gardeners to other community gardens in Lyndale and Kingfield to raise funds, provide educational opportunities, and to build community and connect gardeners across cultures and communities. The G&FJ Organizer will work to establish ongoing relationships with local food shelves, community dinner and food distribution sites, and other food justice organizations to connect Lyndale gardeners into a network where greater community needs can be met from the work they are doing and the food they are growing.
