In particular, we are looking for individuals with expertise in the following areas:

  • Finance/accounting
  • Community Engagement
  • Marketing
  • Human Resources
  • Legal experience
  • Occupational Health and Safety

Please also feel free to contact farm manager Conor Hickey should you have any questions about the CoM.
