The Land Stewardship Project is seeking a full-time staffperson to join our Bridge To Soil Health organizing team, based in southeastern Minnesota (Lewiston). This initiative works directly with, and expands, a strong network of mid-sized crop and livestock farmers in the region that wish to make on-farm changes that build soil health and organic matter levels, improve yields, sequester carbon, and enhance water quality and family farm profitability. The initiative also engages farmers in public policy discussion and prioritizing of much-needed public policy reforms that support soil health, improved conservation, and more farmers on the land. The Bridge to Soil Health team consists of four core members plus administrative and communication support. The applications deadline is March 6, 2020. A full job description and information in applying is here.
