Posted: 31 Jan 2024
Deadline: 4 Mar 2024
Compensation: £12.49 per hour (£22,737 pro rata)
About the role
Propagation Place is the Farm’s eCommerce Community Business where a small team of staff and local volunteers grow and dispatch over 2000 orders of vegetable plug plants, amounting to over 100,000 individual plants, both locally and nationwide each growing season. All profits from sales are used to fund the work we do in our local community. The project was born out of a consultation to find out how to better support our local food system while providing accessible volunteering, training, and employment opportunities from our relatively small urban site. The two Project Assistants will be responsible for supporting the Propagation Place Project through picking and packing and sales of vegetable plug plants as well as being part of all other aspects of the project.
