Administrative Assistant

We expect the tasks of this position to take between 8-10 hours/week (some variability from week to week as the season gets busier). NOTE: we are also hiring packers for our CSA packing day (Wednesdays), and if interested, packing could add another 6-8 hours a week to this position. Our CSA runs for 26 weeks from May through October.

Communication (mass)

Communication (individual)

- one-on-one communications with farmers to confirm the weekly CSA box contents; and follow up with member inquiries by phone and email, including problem-solving issues as they arise at the pick-up locations on delivery days;

CSA Software Logistics (in Farmigo)

- using Farmigo, our CSA software, to coordinate the contents of the box, keep the store updated, generate reports and labels, and track member payment.

Tracking/Record-keeping (outside of Farmigo)

- tracking various CSA-specific metrics, including box values by business, coordinating the rotation of veggies that are harvested in smaller quantities, time spent on various CSA activities, mistakes made, and any member issues or complaints.

This position pays $17/hr with bonus access to produce ‘seconds’ and market returns. On-site office space available and 50 acres to explore during breaks in work! Interested candidates should send a letter of interest to: info@glenvalleycsa.com (hint: effective communications are a big part of the job!)
