This job involves weeding, watering, and moderate to heavy labor, depending on the day. We expect the person to come in with some knowledge of gardening. We will train the person on how to take care of the plants in the Octopus' Garden for the summer. You will also work alongside C.O.C.O.A House and children in the community to plant and cultivate a garden in C.O.C.O.A House’s backyard. There is a high likelihood that C.O.C.O.A House will run a small, in-person program this summer, so you will be expected to garden alongside the children and perhaps run 2-3 workshops (with help and supervision) on healthy eating and exercise.

Twenty hours a week at minimum wage of $12.50/per hour.
Work at the Octopus' Garden is expected for ten weeks through the summer of 2021, between July 12 and September 5. The employee will negotiate one week vacation during this time for a total of 10 weeks. Each week would consist of a flexible schedule of 20 hours (~10 hours at each site).
