SPACE on Ryder Farm, historically a non-profit residency program for artists and activists located on the grounds of a 223-year-old working organic farm, seeks a full time Farm Manager to manage up to a 5.5 acre (some portions of which will immediately be in cultivation, and others in cover crop for future growing seasons) organic farming operation. Founded in 2011, SPACE has run a successful residency program.
