New Entry, an initiative of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, works locally, regionally, and across the country to strengthen local food systems by supporting new farmers. The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s (New Entry) mission is to foster resilience in local, regional, and national food systems by training a new generation of farmers to produce food that is nutritious, culturally connected, and accessible to all individuals. In doing this work, we develop economic opportunities for new farmers, generate new knowledge, and facilitate connections to the land to build thriving communities. The Volunteer Coordinator works closely with staff members to assess volunteer needs, recruit new volunteers as needed, correctly document all volunteer activity, and be a liaison between volunteers and staff members.
