We are looking for students who would be interested in sharing their marketing/social media promotional skills and also someone to help run sound for the back beach gazebo shows. Bruce and Mary Reed, who are in charge of these shows, are some of the nicest people to deal with.
For the Rockport Exchange, we'd love to bring students on in any capacity they are interested in from, (but not limited to), farmers market setup and break down, musicians, event coordination and zero waste volunteers, (to name a few). There are loads of ways for them to get involved in what we do in the community starting with motif #1 day in May all the way through the farmers market season and ending with a bang in October at Harvestfest. This also includes all the programming that we do in the off season.
