Now Seeking: Chef and Organizer in Residence


About the MARSH Chef and Organizer Residency

Imagine you are the lead chef/cook/baker for a 30-seat restaurant and a natural foods grocery with a selection of prepared foods and baked goods. You have access to a full licensed kitchen outfitted with up-to-date equipment. You use ingredients from the attached grocery and seasonal fruits and vegetables from local organic gardens (one of which is on-site). Menus are oriented around seasonality, deliciousness, nutrition, and low-waste. The full food system–diner, grocery, gardens, CSA–is managed cooperatively with other worker-owners, members, and volunteers. The organization as a whole models climate resilience, labor equity, bioethical strategies, and integration of food systems with social justice…

The organization itself is explicitly anti-capitalist and works to directly practice solidarity economics, mutual aid, bioethics, and more habitable relations between humans and Earth. We are located at 6917 S Broadway in the Carondelet neighborhood of St. Louis, MO, USA. On a day-to-day basis, MARSH currently involves: 

Over the course of the next year, MARSH plans to open our diner space to the public and host a series of gatherings that will culminate in late Fall, 2023 in a Community Climate Symposium.

Overview of the Residency
