Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge.”). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.
Sow now, reap later
The weather is getting warmer by the day, and if you’re feeling the itch to get outside and be active, may we suggest starting a garden, as many District-area residents are doing? It’s a great way to disconnect from Internet Life and reconnect with nature, even if it’s just a small corner in your yard or pot on your windowsill.
If you don’t have the space to start your own plot, many community gardens are still open and in need of support while they help provide fresh produce to neighbors in need. DUG — that’s DC Urban Gardeners Network — compiled this helpful list of gardening resources during COVID, and a list of community gardens can be found here.
And if you have the opposite of a green thumb (red pinky toe?), think of your job search as your garden — you’re planting seeds, nourishing them with water and sunlight, and trusting in time to deliver your harvest. So check out the (com)posts below and dig in!
