Want to Join the CSA Core Group?! Opening for a Site Coordinator Position

It feels like Spring out, so let’s just go ahead and say it; “Happy Spring” CSA-ers! The CSA Core Group is also transitioning, and we need your help! To keep the CSA running, we have an immediate need for a CSA Site Coordinator. If you want to get to know your community better, get more involved with the world of local, organic food, and want to learn more about sustainable farming in and around NYC, here’s a great opportunity!

CSA Site Coordinator

This person coordinates the logistics of weekly CSA deliveries and distribution. The Site Coordinator is in charge of making sure our Thursday pickups go smoothly, which includes meeting the delivery truck in the afternoon, coordinating the volunteers to unload the truck and sign in members during distribution, and then at the end of the night, coordinating clean up. This is a time-consuming role, but that’s why it comes with HALF a CSA share FREE!

The Site Coordinator position is held by two people, so you can alternate weeks at the site. We need to fill one of those positions. The other wonderful Site Coordinator will be available to show you the ropes.

Remember, all Core Group members are volunteers and this position requires that you be on site at Sunnyside Community Services (our pick up location) every other Thursday afternoon and evening. Other responsibilities include coaching volunteers, communicating with SCS, and attending our monthly Core Group meetings. Needless to say, if you become a Core Group member, it will fulfill your volunteer requirement for the CSA.

So if you’re organized, sociable, and interested in getting more involved in the running of the CSA, we need you!

CONTACT US or email coregroup [at] sunnysidecsa [dot] com if you’re interested or curious.

Thanks!

Want to Join the CSA Core Group?! Opening for a Special Products Coordinator Position

As we transition to winter and cool-weather veggies, the CSA Core Group is also making a few changes, and we need your help! To keep the CSA running, we have an immediate need for a new Special Products Coordinator. If you want to get to know your community better, get more involved with the world of local, organic food, and want to learn more about sustainable farming in and around NYC, here’s a great opportunity!

Special Products Coordinator
This person coordinates logistics for all CSA products outside of the regular Golden Earthworm vegetable and fruit shares. They are the primary contact for, and liaison with, the farms that provide us with meat, eggs, dairy and frozen veggies (aka: Lewis Waite Farms, Milk Not Jails and Winter Sun Farms). Remember, all Core Group members are volunteers and this position requires that you be available to communicate with our partnering farms, answer CSA member questions, and attend our monthly Core Group meetings. Needless to say, if you become a Core Group member, it will fulfill your volunteer requirement for the CSA.

So if you’re organized, sociable, and interested in getting more involved in the running of the CSA, we need you!

CONTACT US if you’re interested or curious.

Thanks!

Join the CSA Core Group!

UPDATE: Thank you for your interest in joining the Core Group! These positions have recently been filled. We will post again when other Core Group positions open up. If you still want to do more, consider booking yourself a couple of extra Volunteer Shifts during the remainder of the season—we always need extra help getting all the shifts filled. Thanks again.

Hello everyone,

We have had a good season so far, but are starting to need some help within the Core Group to keep the CSA running. If you want to get to know your community better, or if you want to get more involved with the world of farming and local, organic food, here’s a great opportunity. We have two immediate needs:

Events / Fundraising Coordinator
This person is in charge of running our events, such as the cookout and our trips to the farm. Because we often have raffles and other fundraising events to benefit the subsidy program, both roles fall under the same job title. The great thing about this position is the sky is the limit—any social events you want to try, any creative fundraisers you want to host, the opportunity is there—with the entire CSA body as a resource to help make it happen.

Subsidy Coordinator
An incredibly important aspect to the CSA is making sure everyone has access to good food- not just those lucky enough to not have to worry about money. Our subsidized shares feed many families in Sunnyside, but finding those families requires a passionate person. The bulk of the work for this position happens in the first few months of the year, doing outreach to find folks for the upcoming vegetable share season.

There will be more openings and opportunities as the season ends, but these are two positions we need help with right now!

CONTACT US if you’re interested or curious.

Thanks!

Events Coordinator wanted!

Update
We found our events coordinator, but we are always looking for events committee members. Joining a committee is the best way for members to get involved with the long-term commitment of joining the core group.

Want to get more involved with Sunnyside CSA?
Join the core group as our Events Coordinator.

As Events Coordinator, you will plan fun events and fundraisers for the CSA community.
Outside of your events, you will also meet once a month over a homecooked meal to brainstorm with your fellow core group members and ensure the CSA is running smoothly and efficiently.
