NEW! MassLIFT-AmeriCorps Position with Backyard Growers: Youth Education Coordinator
Since 2010 Backyard Growers has helped reshape Gloucester’s relationship with food by providing vegetable gardens at schools, organizations, and homes, and by offering ongoing resources, support, and learning opportunities so people can become successful growers. Our goal is to create life-long gardeners inspired by the power of growing one’s own food. Backyard Growers has served over 130 low to moderate income households, 7 organizations and housing communities, and the entire Gloucester school district.
Please visit Backyard Growers website to learn more about our programs.
Backyard Growers is accepting applications for an additional MassLIFT service member for the 2016-2017 service year to serve as a Youth Education Coordinator.
