Young Agrarians (YA) is an educational resource network for new and young ecological farmers in Canada. YA recognizes the Indigenous lands and territories that we work on and grows relationships towards Truth & Reconciliation. YA is committed to providing programs and services that are inclusive and available to farmers and friends of diverse backgrounds. Since 2012, the YA network is volunteer-driven with farmers across the country organizing on-farm events and building community to create spaces for knowledge sharing and growth.

The B.C. Land Matching Program (BCLMP) provides personalized land matching and business support services to farmers looking for land to start or expand their farm, and landholders interested in finding someone to farm their land. Land Matchers work in depth with land seekers and landholders, helping landholders assess their land opportunities, supporting farmers to become ready to access land, making matches to find the right land/farmer fit, facilitating lease agreements, and providing follow-up support as needed.

YA is seeking someone for the Okanagan-Thompson Land Matcher role who is process-oriented, has excellent communication and project management skills, enjoys working on a computer as well as building relationships, and understands farming.

Deadline: April 15
