Farm-Based Education Residency

January 5 - November 20, 2015

The Farm Based Education Residency is an opportunity for individuals interested in pursuing a career in education for sustainability with a focus on farm-based education. Residents will observe, team-teach, and teach independently as part of the education department. Our education programs include school programs, preschool Adventures, summer camps, and family programs. Opportunities for reflection and professional development will be provided throughout the residency.

Housing is provided for a learning community immersion experience. Residents will work full time, with occasional evenings and weekends.  Residents will receive $350 per week in compensation; a small weekly expense will be deducted to help defer the cost of housing.

Qualifications & Requirements:

Farm-Based Education Residencies are intended for post-college individuals with some previous teaching experience. Candidates should enjoy working with children and be excited about learning.  A degree or equivalent experience in Education, Environmental Studies, Agriculture or a related field is preferred.

NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for 2015.
