SnoValley Tilth seeks to create a thriving, sustainable regional food economy in the Snoqualmie and Snohomish watersheds, with a strong community of successful farmers at its heart. Our primary focus is on farmers—both experienced and new farmers—but our work also benefits community members and local food consumers. We connect and educate through monthly potlucks, workshops and farm tours, the Experience Farming Project, and the Carnation Farmers Market. We advocate for farmers and landowners at the city and county levels.

A small, dynamic non-profit (staff of four) seeks an office manager to support program staff and the Executive Director in administrative and bookkeeping tasks as well as keeping the office space running smoothly and serving as our first line of communication with the public.
