Urban Harvest STL - Garden Education Assistant
Urban Harvest STL believes that all St. Louisans should have equitable access to fresh, healthy food regardless of socioeconomic status, race or location. We grow organic produce at seven farms across St. Louis City- where our most pressing food needs exist- and donate the majority of our harvest to nonprofit partners serving the under-served and under-resourced.
One of our farms is located at Flance Early Learning Center, where we offer weekly garden education to their preschool classes. Education includes introductory lessons on growing food, plants, nature and nutrition. This position is needed to assist with teaching the classes on Wednesday mornings and will need to collaborate with our Education Coordinator in lesson preparation during the week. Other responsibilities may include designing and implementing learning and engagement opportunities for our other farm sites.
The schedule is somewhat flexible and requires up to 10 hours each week. Wednesday mornings are required.
