Hiring: Garden Manager- Overlook Farm
Garden Manager at Overlook FARM – Rutland, MA
Overlook Food Awareness Resource of Massachusetts, Inc. (Overlook FARM) is a working farm in Rutland, MA with deep roots in the community that teaches the value of sustainable agriculture and promotes food justice to grow a healthy world. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit established to grow food to teach learners of all ages about the food system and share fresh, nutritious produce with the community. Founded in 2018, we launched growing & programming in 2021, and 2022 has been the first full growing season. We have a small-scale, no-till garden with room for expansion.
Overlook FARM is seeking a part-time Garden Manager to oversee the continued expansion of our garden, which provides food for donation to local communities and educational opportunities. This is a great opportunity for someone experienced in growing food and passionate about sustainable agriculture, who is also excited to be building something new. There is possibility for the position to expand to full-time in future growing seasons.
Working with the Executive Director and Education & Program Coordinator, this position will develop and implement a growing plan for a garden that supports educational programs and bulk food donations. In 2023, we also want to build our volunteer base and provide more experiences for community groups to engage and give back locally.
