Local Foods Kitchen Crafting Opportunity with OUR Zero Mile Meal Eatery

Posted: November 21, 2014

We are wishing to put out word that OUR ECOVILLAGE has a local foods, food as medicine, educational “Zero Mile Meal Eatery” onsite at OUR 25 acre Sustainable Living Demonstration Site and Education Centre that we have been slowly crafting and are intending to take to a fully functioning space for the many eaters who come through OUR ECOVILLAGE educational programming every year.

At this point we are putting out word for anyone who wishes to be on OUR team working towards having OUR Zero Mile Meal Eatery serve the large amount of learners who come into an immersed learning environment on OUR farm.  Farmers, school children/youth, community programs, and other organizations/businesses come onsite and often need to eat and have access to learning more about local, yummy, mostly organic, medical diets, farm foods and the politics thereof (phew).

We are hoping to find the most amazing person/persons who might wish to step forward and either work on staff or even potentially look at being a business partner in OUR Coop–leading this food programming with the farmers and educators who are facilitating (usually about 30–40 of us facilitating the programming and site/events).

We will also be looking to take up to two Volunteers/SkillTrader folks who wish to participate in the immersed learning environment and enjoying this outstanding and unique intentional community experience while they work with OUR kitchen and events team.

To express interest in the main role or SkillTrade positions, please forward a resume and covering letter to info @ ourecovillage (dot) org.
