If you have a business in Truckee and are looking for a community project for your employees, the Garden is the perfect opportunity! Our busy season is May through October and business partners can help with Community Dig-Ins, weekly maintenance, or by making monetary or in-kind contributions.
PAID INTERN OPPORTUNITIES
Organic Gardening Internship
The 2021 Internship position has been filled and we are no longer accepting applications. Check back in February 2022 for details on next season's position and how to apply.
Key responsibilities of this position include,
but are not limited to:
Cultivating the space: planting seeds, maintaining irrigation and garden infrastructure, and harvesting and preparing produce for distribution.
Overseeing volunteers for Harvest Mondays and Work Wednesdays.
Helping build the new Truckee Community Garden (adjacent to the Food Bank Garden).
Running the SFLT compost collection booth at both Tuesday and Saturday Farmers Markets.
Help us harvest our beautiful bounty on a Monday morning from 8am-12pm! All produce grown in the garden is harvested and donated to Sierra Community House. We will spend the morning picking veggies and herbs that are ready to go, wash them, weigh and bundle them to deliver to Sierra Senior Services (across the street from the garden).
Community Soup Night
Showcase your food skills to the community! If you are looking for an opportunity to share your expertise with a group of like-minded individuals, we'd love to connect! Past Skillshares have included Canning 101, Make Your Own Bone Broth and Brew Your Own Beer.
This is a great opportunity to come help in the garden during the week - 9am-1pm. There are countless projects to be completed this season, and a whole flourishing garden space to be maintained. Tasks include watering plants, planting new seedlings, pruning plants, cleaning the space and assisting the Garden Director with any ongoing projects.
Community Garden Committee & Build
We are organizing a steering committee to help with further fundraising, marketing, and building of the Community Garden. If you are interested and have expertise to lend, we'd love to hear from you!
