JOB OPENING: CSA Manager

Enright Ridge Urban Eco Village CSA in the East Price Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio is accepting letters of interest for the Farm Manager Position for the 2014 growing season.   All vegetable production is done in accordance with organic practices.  We have a greenhouse, walk-behind tractor, walk-in cooler and other equipment.

2013 marked the fifth year of this urban CSA and we used between ¼ and ½ acres for a 75-share CSA distributing from mid-May through the first week of November. We also have access to up to 3 acres nearby which are calling for your attention to soil improvement and building!  Free housing in the Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage is a potential additional benefit, (walk or bike to work)!

This position is an opportunity to participate in the growth of urban agriculture in Cincinnati, while facing the unique challenges and enjoying the benefits that accompany this model. We are seeking someone who can innovate and who has strong leadership capabilities, and experience managing others as well as production experience.

If you are interested, please submit a letter briefly stating your experience, why this position would be a good fit for you, and why you think you would be successful. Submission can be sent to the following email address: suellyn7@yahoo.com
