Reports to: Farm2Market Manager
Alameda Point Collaborative (APC) is the largest supportive housing community in the county, working to end homelessness by providing housing and services to create communities where formerly homeless families and individuals can flourish. APC’s Farm2Market (F2M) is a diversified working urban farm and a social enterprise of Alameda Point Collaborative. The farm consists of 2-acres of vegetable crops, fruit orchards, bee hives and flowers. We use our passion for community, food and the environment to support APC residents as they move toward economic self-sufficiency and greater health and wellness. The farm employs APC residents through a job-training program, which uses the real work of farm production, marketing, sales and customer relations as key activities through which trainees can learn work readiness skills, understand workplace behaviors and practice personal and team accountability. We offer two 6-month training programs for adult residents and an 8-week program for youth residents (ages 13-17) in the summer every year. The farm also operates a CSA business to generate revenue for APC.
As a member of the Employment Services team, the F2M Assistant Manager will work in collaboration with the F2M manager to lead and supervise the crew of youth and adult resident on-the-job trainees, supervise volunteers, share responsibility for managing the farm’s CSA business (including planting, harvesting, maintaining the farm produce and fulfilling customer commitments), and upkeep and maintain the farm site.
