Event Coordinator – Hidden Harvest
Hidden Harvest Ottawa is a charitable project on MakeWay’s shared platform, with a mission to make use of the urban fruit in backyards and on city property, that would otherwise go to waste. We do this by
running volunteer-led fruit tree picks, contributing fresh food from every harvest to local food banks and
agencies. Through our harvests, educational events, and partnerships, we seek to make good use of
local food and inspire community members to steward the bounty growing in their own neighbourhoods.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, independent people-person who shares our passion for creating a foodtree friendly city to join us as our Event Coordinator. The Coordinator supports the rescue of fruit by
coordinating harvest opportunities, facilitating events, and enabling harvest leaders and volunteers to
make more events happen. With your help, our Neighbourhood Leaders and other volunteers will harvest hundreds of trees and share the bounty with thousands of people through local community food
programs, food banks, volunteers, and processing partners.
