Sustainable Solano Seeks Benicia Community Gardens Program Manager

JUNE 28th 2017

Sustainable Solano is looking for a Program Manager to oversee both gardens and Benicia Community Orchard. This is an administrative, “back office” position that serves as a liaison between the Board and garden/orchard coordinators. We are looking for a responsible, self-motivated person with good organizational and communication skills, working knowledge of Excel and sensitivity to privacy issues. This role can be a great fit for someone who cannot perform a lot of communal gardening functions or who needs an administrative or non-profit management experience for professional growth (it looks great on the resume)!

The position will require 4-6 hours monthly on average; it comes with a $100 monthly stipend. The preference will be given to current members of Avant Garden, Swenson Garden and/or Community Orchard.

The main functions are:

  • Maintain gardeners’ database in Excel
  • Coordinate waiting list
  • Work with garden coordinators to ensure accuracy of bed assignments, payment and turnover
  • Coordinate cross-gardens work teams
  • Monitor BCG email and update email databases
  • Coordinate annual agreement re-signing and payment collection by March 21 of each year
  • Lead Garden Leadership committee
