Executive Director Announcement

Tilth Alliance seeks an experienced, visionary leader to work with our partners, Board, staff, and members to help take our organization to a new level of programmatic and financial success. The recent merger of our three organizations, Tilth Producers, Seattle Tilth and Cascade Harvest Coalition, and subsequent leadership changes, has led the Board to examine and re-define our strategic direction. Our ideal candidate is a collaborative, get-work-done, strategic thinker, with a background in complex non-profit management and an understanding of Washington’s food system and its players.
Tilth Alliance is committed to working in partnership with a broad array of organizations to help cultivate a sustainable and equitable food system in Washington State.

To this end, we are looking for someone who can cultivate positive relationships among agricultural producers, consumers, gardeners, cooks, educators, environmental advocates, donors, and funders to address actions and policies to build a healthier food system.

About Tilth Alliance
At Tilth Alliance, we want everyone to be able to eat well, every day. We are a 501c3 nonprofit with a long history of inspiring, teaching and empowering people to grow, cook and eat food in ways that contribute to thriving communities and a healthy environment. We have consistently provided:
Science-based experiential education designed to expand understanding of how food is grown, distributed, and prepared;
Peer-to-peer learning, networking and resources to foster thriving, successful farm businesses that promote sustainable practices and support consumption of local, seasonal food.
We look to a future in which Tilth Alliance reinforces and amplifies the work of many others involved in building strong sustainable food economies across Washington’s urban and rural areas. We envision a state whose culture values and stands up for resilient farmers, healthy ecosystems, and engaged eaters.
