Hiring 2016 Teen Agricultural Crew
Maine Coast Heritage Trust seeks independent, creative, hardworking teens ages 14-18 to work part-time this spring and fall and full-time in the summer growing vegetables for food pantries and schools.
Successful applicants should be able to work as a team and independently. Ideal candidates are young leaders who want to learn about sustainable agriculture, gain job skills, and contribute to the community, all the while spending lots of time outdoors at Erickson Fields Preserve in Rockport.
This is an excellent job if you are considering a future in horticulture or agriculture. The work is both challenging and rewarding and contributes to your community in a meaningful way.
Last year’s Teen Ag Crew distributed over 20,000 lbs of produce throughout the community, supplying local school lunch programs, five area food pantries, and non-profit organizations that address food insecurity in Maine.
