It's that time of year again - hiring time!

We are Earth + City, an innovative and exciting food preparation company located in Toronto, looking for new people to join our growing team for this season (Late April / Early May to October). It is our mission to enrich the health and sustainability of our local food community and economy. We prepare healthy, plant-based food in tandem with the Ontario growing season.

The job requires both mental and physical strength and stamina, as you will be on your feet and moving most of the working day.

If you are a person who wants to work in an energising work environment, who has initiative and drive, and who wants to spend time engaged in Toronto’s amazing food community, then please apply!
