POCKET CITY FARMS BOARD MEMBERS – E.O.I
We are currently fielding expressions of interest for potential positions on the Pocket City Farms board of directors. If you’re passionate about bringing farming back into our cities to help create more sustainable, healthy and resilient communities, we’d love to hear from you!
The overall role of the board and its members is to contribute to shaping the role and development of Pocket City Farms within urban agriculture, local food production and building community and education.
All board member positions are voluntary with all members required to be active in their roles. Board meetings are held monthly in Sydney. The roles of the board members may include, but not be limited to, at any time; contributing time within reason to the necessary tasks involved in setting up new projects throughout the stages of planning and development, through to completion and operations, overseeing current project operations and contributing ideas and feedback, developing new ideas and structures around space use and operations, fundraising, speaking on behalf of PCF at events, contributing to good governance, building a strong network, and supporting staff members.
We are fielding expressions of interest from potential members with the drive and passion to continue building this urban farm project. We have particular interest in applicants with experience in business, strategy and development, local food systems, legal, grants and fundraising, non-profit governance, administration support, education, community projects and public policy.
This is a great opportunity for anyone keen to help develop urban agriculture, and its role in local food production and community building, in Australia within a grassroots association.
To express your interest, please email a cover letter outlining your interest in involvement and your relevant experience, with a copy of your CV to Emma Bowen, at email@example.com
We do not currently have any paid positions available with Pocket City Farms, however we do have some great opportunities to get involved with our volunteer programs. Including our Food Forest Community Group, Compost Carers and Chicken Carer programs, as well as our weekly volunteer sessions.
