The mission of Transplanting Traditions is to uplift food sovereignty in the refugee community through access to land, education and entrepreneurial opportunities. The farm provides a cultural community space for refugee adults and youth to come together, recreate home, build healthy communities, and continue agricultural traditions in the Piedmont of N.C. The farmers that make up the community at TTCF have life-long experience growing food. Through the Business Development and Share-A-Share programs, TTCF works with farmers to expand their farm businesses and support food insecure refugee and immigrant communities.

This individual will work closely with the Programs Director and Farm Programs team to increase and expand marketing opportunities for the TTPN, and will be responsible for customer service and record keeping for CSA and wholesale channels. This person will also work directly with farmers on site at TTCF in Chapel Hill as well as farmers off site to provide business development and marketing education services. Applicants with immigrant or AAPI identity are encouraged to apply.
