Organization Description: Mill City Grows (MCG) was founded in 2011 as a catalyst for food justice, ensuring that all people of Lowell have access to culturally connected food, land, and education. Our programs have grown from a single community garden to include: food, nutrition and advocacy education for people of all ages; community, school and market gardens; working urban farms; mobile markets and farm shares; and above all encouraging and supporting people to grow their own food. MCG infuses food production spaces with food education to increase food sovereignty, universal access to fresh produce, and promote environmental sustainability throughout Lowell.
Position Description: The role of the Summer Youth Coordinator will be based in Mill City Grows’ School Education Department and will function as a liaison with Lowell Public Schools staff and faculty. The primary focus of the Summer Youth Coordinator will be to support our summer school education programming and school gardens.
