Ganas is looking for a community minded person to join our maintenance
team and help maintain our 8 houses and 4 commercial properties.
We have project needs in carpentry, drywall, landscaping, masonry,
concrete work, digging, siding repairs, painting. We're looking
for someone with skills in these areas, has attention to detail,
can see a project through in consultation with the area supervisor
who is available to plan, problem solve, and obtain supplies.
Having a strong back is essential and being comfortable on ladders
This is an opportunity for someone who is young and wants to
build skills, or someone who is retired but likes to be useful
and keep busy. Living at Ganas you will not make tons of money,
and if that's what you want or need this is probably not the place
What you can have at Ganas is the satisfaction that you are working
for the people you live with. You see how your work matters and
improves life for yourself and your community mates. You can also
have flexibility to take advantage of the many opportunities in
NYC. You get to move around, work with some independence or team
up, and if you like to work with your hands there's never a shortage
of things needing to be done. There are constant opportunities
to learn and to teach.
If you think this might be a fit for you, email Catherine at
email@example.com with some information about your background,
your skills, your current situation and why a live/work community
