Zero Waste Educator

Educate market shoppers about our Zero Waste composting program. Last year we composted 94% of waste at our markets thanks to the help of our wonderful volunteers! Teach shoppers about compostable plastics, manage composting stations, and collect data for the Zero Waste program! There’s no need to be an expert – every volunteer is provided with an orientation, handouts and information to make his/her shift a fun way to spread the word about waste reduction! The Zero Waste Volunteer shift is from 10AM to 1:15PM every Saturday of our outdoor season. Click here for a full description of our Zero Waste Educator position.

Annual Benefit Planning Committee

Looking for ways to be more involved and support your farmers market? Do you want to meet some fun, creative people who are passionate about supporting local foods and farmers? Join our Benefit Planning Committee! We are seeking committee members to help plan our annual benefit dinner on September 9, 2018. This event is our major fundraiser, raising nearly 1/3 of our annual budget, and it directly benefits our farmers. It is always a highlight of the summer, featuring a delicious, harvest meal prepared by our market chefs.

The benefit committee meets monthly January through August, and there are lots of ways to be involved. If you are interested in helping out, please email the market’s executive director, Martha Archer at martha@millcityfarmersmarket.org. Thank you!
