Job description

Want to do something really positive and learn more about the food and farming movement at the same time? If the answer is ‘yes’ then read on...

It’s that time of year when The Community Farm recruits new people to maintain the strength of its all-important management committee.

You will be joining a strong team of energetic and enthusiastic committee members who work closely with our senior staff team. The committee is responsible for governance, rather than operations, but as a small and young organization we are closely involved in the life of the Farm. 

Particular experience, skills and knowledge we are looking for include;

  • legal expertise especially pertaining to agriculture
  • financial management and accountancy
  • anti-racism
  • biodiversity and ecology
  • fundraising

If this might be you we would love to hear from you! Please contact our current Chairperson Angela Raffle

We will hold a session at the Farm in late June for prospective committee members to come and find about the Farm and meet our Managing Director, Chair, and some current management committee members.
