Ontario Soil Network - Regional Coordinators

With project support from ROI, via CAP funding, the Ontario Soil Network (OSN) is a farmer-to-farmer network to share knowledge about cover crops, no-till/strip-till, amendments and making crop production systems that build soil health work. The OSN needs a few self-starters to support farmers and farmer-led events across Southern and Eastern Ontario.

This is a part-time job with flexible hours and involves talking with farmers, coordinating and advertising events, finding local sponsorship and partnerships and record keeping. Project management, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and communication skills are required, along with a clean drivers record and personal vehicle for travel. Knowledge of cropping systems, strong rural and agriculture networks and social media skills are a benefit.

Please send your resume and cover letter (five-page maximum) to Gabrielle Ferguson, gferguson@ruralontarioinstitute.ca, by November 23, 2018.
