Resilient Neighborhood Program Manager

Sustainable Solano is looking for a part-time Resilient Neighborhood Program Manager to join our collaborative and dedicated team.

The main goal of this position is to design and implement the Resilient Neighborhood Pilot Program in Vallejo and to scale up the pilot to other cities in Solano County. Our vision for Resilient Neighborhoods is based on our strong belief that social cohesion between neighbors is a keystone of community sustainability. We envision community members working together to transform our neighborhoods into green, lush, beautiful, productive, habitat-diverse ecosystem fed primarily by rain- and greywater. This program will expand upon our well-established approach to sustainable landscaping based on permaculture and secondary water by incorporating other models and strategies, including biomimicry, Living Cities, Resilient Cities Initiatives and other. These transformed neighborhoods will serve as a source of learning and inspiration for the entire county to prepare our communities for the effects of climate change and to make our cities more beautiful, just and resilient places to live and work in.

We are looking for a highly-organized, creative, enthusiastic individual to help bring this vision to life!
