Thank you for your interest in the coordinator role. There are two possibilities to engage:
Be a coordinator (help others!) – help your community get safe, hygienic produce. Help farmers sustain their livelihoods. Have opportunity to earn yourself.

Before applying, please read the following info
Community coordinators should fit the following profile:
• Have good connections to local community
• Can aggregate bulk orders (target >30 orders, however if lesser orders, we can explore connecting with other coordinators)
• Take orders and manage payments

As an overview, produce is individually packed and sealed in a hygienic box with extra care taken to ensure quality and minimize handling. Boxes are delivered according to pre-orders to community coordinators who coordinate with consumers to receive the box. This is done to ensure order fulfillment, economic feasibility for the farmers , and maximum adherence to social distancing norms.
Box offerings change on weekly basis. Latest availability will be communicated to you.
