Work Trash at the Fair

This year the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Fair is going green. 

Island Grown Initiative (IGI) has been hired to oversee trash, recycling, and composting operations. We have revamped how the waste will be handled. There will be three centralized Waste Stations where fairgoers will bring their waste, and then Green Team Youth Waste workers and volunteers will help them sort everything properly. This is a great opportunity to make sure all of the waste at the Ag Fair is going to its optimal end point, and less waste is ending up in a landfill. 

Green Team Youth Waste Workers make $6/hour, get free entry to the fair on the day they work, and get a free t-shirt. We are hiring 10-14 year olds for this position. To sign up, click here

We will also need volunteers to help us oversee the waste stations and ensure that everything runs smoothly. Volunteers receive free entry to the fair on the day they work, and a free t-shirt. To sign up, click here
