Land’s Skae Farm hiring Part-time Education Coordinator

Weston, Massachusetts

Land’s Sake seeks an Education Coordinator with a flexible schedule. The person in this position will be able to work 10-15 hours a week (mostly mornings) during the school year, and 40 hours a week during the summer from late June to mid August.  The coordinator will be responsible for teaching farm-based education programs for schools, after-school programs, events, sugaring tours, family programs, outreach programs, and summer programs.

The coordinator will also act as the Green Power leader during the summer. The Green Power leader is in charge of students ages 13-17 for week-long, full day programs. Green Power is a local food immersion program and includes time spent working on the farm, doing community service with local food organizations, teaching kids about the farm during Boys and Girls club tours, and creating a meal made with local ingredients. The general schedule for this program is already set, so the person in this position would just need to come in and own it as well as set up some of the logistical details. The Coordinator will also be responsible for helping to hire a Green Power assistant to help them lead the program.
