Pay rate: $13 – $15/hour based on experience.

Be a part of one of the best CSAs in Boulder County! The CSA Manager is the face of Red Wagon for our CSA members. CSA members’ experience at CSA pickups is in large part their experience with our farm. We are looking for someone who is friendly, organized, and has the ability to work under pressure. Preference will be given to candidates who may be available for more than one season due to the amount of training and responsibility required for this role.
