Website Updates in Progress + Organic Jobs

Naomi and Neil are currently tinkering with the website to give it a winter spruce up, (in case you catch us in progress and it looks funny for a bit... ha ha..)

Organic Jobs available! Verdura Culinary Gardens is hiring a Garden Grow Manager & Installation Team Member, R-evolution Gardens farm on the coast is hiring (photo on right), Oregon Tilth, Inc. is hiring a Program Assistant & Garden Educator and Community By Design LLC's farm has space for a goat operation, pastured poultry and blueberry acreage for lease + a free Blueberry Care Seminar on 1/14.  

Update 1/13 = More neat jobs:  Zenger Farm in SE Portland is hiring seasonal staff positions and internships.  Great volunteer and community opportunities, too, including their Bee Group, Worm Project and Egg Co-operative.  Growing Gardens is seeking a creative, experienced and detail oriented Business Manager, applications due 1/24 (lots of excellent volunteer work with them, too).
Urban Food Zoning Code Advisory Group - in early February, I'll have news on some exciting proposed changes we've been working on for Portland's zoning code update in terms of easier bee-keeping, a bit more livestock, enhanced farmer's market and market gardener/urban farmer code, very good things!  : )
