The Blueprint aims to increase the number and economic viability of farms and food businesses representing the diverse populations of the Hudson Valley and New England. The project will shift the region’s status quo towards more comprehensive service provision by networking, elevating, and supporting business technical assistance to farms and food businesses and by developing a professional alliance of service providers. Alliance members will foster mentorship; share resources and best practices to improve overall service quality; and otherwise bring resources, structure, and professionalization to the sector. Within that body of work, the Blueprint will also strengthen the educational pipeline to train future providers, take advantage of funding opportunities, and implement a comprehensive equity framework.
The Blueprint is a new initiative that is hosted by The Carrot Project/TSNE MissionWorks and is led by a three-person executive committee including staff from The Carrot Project, HVADC (the Hudson Valley Agribusiness Development Corporation) and the Vermont Farm and Forest Farm Viability Program, plus five Steering Committee members from across the region.
The Blueprint Coordinator provides backbone support to the alliance through communication, alliance coordination, and staffing the alliance's task forces. The Coordinator is the primary staff person supporting this developing network. The Coordinator works closely with the three-person executive committee including the supervisor, the Executive Director (ED) of The Carrot Project, as well as numerous other committees. If you are a self-starter, enjoy working on new initiatives, are a good communicator, and are able to switch gears and keep multiple projects moving forward then this position may be for you.
Position is full-time at $20.00 per hour and includes full benefit package including health and dental insurance, retirement, life insurance and more.
