The Carrot Project’s vision is to significantly increase the number of
successful small farm and agricultural businesses leading to a meaningful
increase in local food production in the Northeast. We help to launch small
farm and agricultural businesses and support their growth towards
profitability, a crucial factor to business viability. We want the farms and
businesses that we work with today to be here in 5, 10, and 50 years from now.
Their success is the foundation of a strong local food economy.
The Greater Boston Outreach Fellow will play an integral role in spreading
awareness of The Carrot Project and its mission with the goal of increasing
awareness of the organization in Greater Boston. The Fellow will work closely
with the Client Services Coordinator to execute outreach in Greater Boston for
our training, financing, and technical assistance programs directed at farms
and food businesses and to maintain relationships with key partner
organizations. We seek someone who excels at relationship building, has
experience carrying out outreach activities, is self-directed, and is
motivated by working as part of a team. Marketing and outreach or sales
experience in agriculture is highly preferred. Residence in Boston or
surrounding communities is required.
This is a part-time, temporary fellowship and hours will vary on a weekly
basis. Total hours worked will range from 50-100 between November 2018 and
