Small Farms Community Educator Positions (Community Education Specialist II)
Background. The University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) has recently received support from the California State Legislature to expand our extension services for small to medium scale family farms, diversified farming systems, and socially disadvantaged farmers. This expanded program will build on the extension services currently offered by UC ANR Small Farms Advisors, assisting farmers through individual farm visits and technical assistance, training and educational materials offered in multiple languages, research on specialty crops and diversified farming systems, improving access to markets and financial assistance, and assisting farmers with regulatory compliance.
Positions being hired. We are hiring seven Small Farms Community Educators who will join a team of UC ANR academics and staff providing extension services to small-scale farms and conducting outreach to expand these services. These positions are based in seven multi-county regions throughout California. The Community Educators will work closely with the Small Farms Advisors and with Community Educators in other county regions, as well as with nonprofit partner organizations supporting similar farming operations, to increase farmer access to training, resources, and research-based information.
Location. There are multiple county locations recruiting for this position in seven different regions of California. Applicants are encouraged to apply separately to each location of interest. Please visit http://sfp.ucdavis.edu/Small_Farms_Positions/ for a listing of all available Small Farms Community Educator positions.
Language considerations. A priority of this program is multi-lingual outreach and educational materials for immigrant and refugee farmers. Candidates with proficiency in another language such as Spanish, Hmong, Mien, Lao, Chinese, or Korean are encouraged to apply. Please see individual job postings for the preferred languages for each region.
