Work With Us

The Quivira Coalition is a great place to work, at the intersection of conservation and agriculture. We are a warm group that works to walk our talk and create a safe place to work in. We hope you consider being part of our team! If you are interested in an internship, make us a proposal!

We are a Santa Fe-based nonprofit that builds resilience on arid working lands. We foster ecological, economic, and social health through education, innovation, and collaboration. The Quivira Coalition aims to shift current practices of agriculture and land stewardship to those that produce good food, support meaningful livelihoods in rural places, sustain biodiversity, and remedy the impacts of climate change. We do this work through agricultural apprenticeship, land and water restoration, and rancher- and farmer-led knowledge exchange. Knowing that it is critical to the success of our work, Quivira Coalition is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we aspire to build a diverse staff team and community, including groups that are traditionally under-represented among stewardship and agricultural support services.

Since its establishment in 1997, the Quivira Coalition has prided itself on its history of working across differences at the radical center, though we have not always accomplished this and continue to strive for improvement. In the last year, we have become increasingly aware of the work that we must do to ensure that individuals and communities of all backgrounds are truly included and welcomed into our work, and the ongoing legacies of racism. Quivira Coalition is taking its steps toward becoming an antiracist organization, and reevaluating what diversity, equity and inclusion means for the organization. This is difficult, often messy, ongoing work, and we are committed to working through the challenges to join the movement for racially just regenerative agriculture. We have made mistakes, committed harm, and are committed to growth. We hope new hires and the perspectives they bring will continue to help us navigate this path. We invite candidates to ask questions about where we are in this journey, and to join us in moving the organization and the regenerative agriculture movement towards becoming more just, equitable, and inclusive.

We have the following positions open:

Internships

Seeking individuals enrolled in either an academic program or a non-profit experiential education program interested in expanding their intellectual and experiential capacity around regenerative agriculture, soil health, land management, and conservation.

Fellowship

This OpenTEAM fellowship offers an opportunity for a Fellow to work closely with ranchers in California and New Mexico and to support soil health stewardship through technology development and assistance.
