We are seeking a thoughtful, reflective individual with an understanding of the urgency of anthropogenic climate disruption and a passion for sustainable solutions that support our education mission.

This individual will also manage and work on the one-acre campus farm, primarily from May to September. Responsibilities will include but not be limited to planting plants, weeding, trimming, cleaning, keeping all records for the campus farm, making plans to expand the farm, and interfacing with Bon Appetit, local food pantries, and other interested parties.
