Small Holder Farm Career Day & Job Fair

When: Monday, April 19
Where: WCC’s Morris Lawrence Building at Washtenaw Community College

Why: This event, the first of its kind in SE Michigan, is an opportunity to bring farmers and job seekers together so our entire community of skills is available to grow our local food system.

We encourage farmers to consider all of the skills needed to make their farm a thriving business. Maybe you need a website, a welder, a production manager, a book keeper, a food safety coordinator, someone to repair machines, and don't forget field labor. Whether you need a one-time project completed or ongoing help you can find the talent you need at the Small Holder Farm Career Day and Job Fair. Farmers, please complete the attached registration form to get a table at the event or call Victoria Bennett at 734-973-3364 to talk about how this event could help your farm.

We encourage job seekers (or really anyone interested in learning more about farming) to consider what skills they have to help SE Michigan farms reach full potential. Looking for a job, but not sure farm work is right for you? Come to the panel discussions and find out what it’s all about.
