Our LC Valley Coordinator position is focused on program development in Lewiston, ID, and Clarkston, WA, as well as the surrounding communities in Nez Perce and Asotin counties. Backyard Harvest is excited to increase our operations and impact in an area with unique produce and an extended growing season. The LC Valley Coordinator will begin focusing on relationship-building, donor cultivation, and outreach to build the visibility and reach of our programs. This work will include community engagement, grant writing, volunteer recruitment, program development, and leading volunteers in gleaning produce and distribution. This is a great opportunity to learn more about food security and the local food system.

Volunteer & Events Coordinator

AmeriCorps VISTA

Our Volunteer & Events Coordinator position will build long-term, meaningful relationships with our volunteers in an effort to increase commitments to our mission and the work of our organization. Backyard Harvest is expanding our team to bring on someone that can also excel at relationship building with access sites like the Latah County Recovery Center, Senior Meals, and local food pantries and that is able to empower our volunteers to effectively serve these organizations alongside us. The Volunteer & Events Coordinator will explore better marketing and recruitment strategies for Shop the Market—the program that enables SNAP/EBT recipients to shop at local farmers markets; establish fun, engaging opportunities for volunteers and creative ways to show our appreciation for these supporters; and secure funding for future volunteer coordination team members and expanded volunteer programming.
