Job description

The City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is filling a part-time position to manage the Better Together Garden at Portland City Hall. The Better Together Garden was created in 2009 as a demonstration garden to inspire Portlanders to grow their own food and to donate their surplus to those lacking access to nutritious produce.


About the position

The City Hall Garden Manager will oversee operations of the Better Together Garden at Portland City Hall. This part-time position will have full responsibility in planning crop rotation; procuring seeds, starts, and tools; planting; weeding; maintaining infrastructure; coordinating with other bureaus as needed; harvesting and donating produce; interacting with members of the public; and performing other tasks to keep the garden productive and attractive throughout the year. This position has full authority and discretion over caring for the garden and works largely unsupervised, though the supervisor will assist the gardener in securing reimbursements and other logistical matters. General upkeep of the garden will comprise approximately 60 percent of this position’s time.
 

This position will also work with nonprofit service providers to continue and further develop programming that could include produce donation, career training experiences, educational activities, and other programs with youth experiencing homelessness and other populations as the gardener and nonprofit partners see fit. The gardener will harvest and donate produce to nonprofit partners as well as plan and lead workdays with clients. Programming with nonprofit service providers will comprise approximately 30 percent of this position’s time, and planning and program development with the supervisor and nonprofit partners will comprise approximately 10 percent of this position’s time.
