Job Description:

Tiny Green Trees is looking to hire a part time organic cook / gardener for our nature based children's center. The hours onsite are 10am  to 5:30pm.  We are seeking someone who enjoys working in the company of small children and loves to cook and garden.   We want our cook to be creative and have a strong knowledge of ingredients and how to use them in a way that small children can appreciate.  The cook will need to have strong estimating and purchasing skills when shopping  for healthy, natural, organic food options in an economical way.  In the past we have purchased grass fed local cattle, participated in a CSA and have shopped at local farmers markets within a given budget.  The cook will  make sure each piece of food is safe, prepared correctly and tasty.  This would apply to the garden as well.  Time management skills are a must.   Shopping, prep time and clean up need to be kept to a tight time frame because serving food on time is critical to maintain the children’s daily rhythm.  The cook will create a seasonal menu with the Director to reflect the gardens production. Shopping would be done once a week with own vehicle at local co-op once lunch is served before transitioning to caregiver duties.

The afternoon lead caregiver responsibilities include gentle waking from naps and enjoying a snack with the children helping them uphold their golden manners.  The majority of the afternoon is then spent enjoying the outdoors until parents arrive.  The ability to help children with these transitions and building a rapport with the parents is essential.

As we are a small center we are not able to provide health/wellness benifits at this time.

How to Apply:

The position will be available mid to late December.  Please send letter of interest and resume to our center director, Julie Krill at
