Board of Directors

Cultivate KC is seeking motivated and mission-aligned community members to join our Board of Directors.

Our non-profit organization’s mission is to grow food, farms and community in support of an equitable, sustainable and healthy local food system for all. We have been in operation since 2005 and operate programs aimed at developing and supporting our region’s urban farmers, while also providing direct food assistance to low-income populations throughout the metro. At our headquarters, we use our demonstration farm to both educate and excite visitors about the KC local food system.

Board members with Cultivate KC serve up to three consecutive 2-year terms, attend bimonthly board meetings, participate in committee work, and act as ambassadors for the organization both in the community and at Cultivate KC events, as available. Board members are also expected to support the organization financially in a manner commensurate with one’s ability, which can include connecting our team to members of your network for donation and/or sponsorship requests.

We are seeking board members who represent the diversity of the community we serve and bring a wide range of skills to our organization. Specifically, we need individuals with expertise (or the willingness to learn) in food systems, real estate, finance, marketing, program development, fundraising, event planning, and administration.
