The Farm Based Education Residency is an opportunity for those interested in pursuing a career in Environmental or Agricultural Education to gain early experience in the field. Residents will observe, team-teach, and teach independently in our school programs, summer camp programs, and in the pre-school Adventures program.
Residents work full time and teach 5 days a week, and will be compensated at minimum wage. Housing is provided for a learning community immersion experience. While living on site, residents are encouraged to enhance their practical experience through active engagement in other departments on the farm. A small weekly expense will be deducted to help defer the cost of housing.
Qualifications & Requirements:
Farm-Based Education Residencies are for post-college individuals with some previous teaching experience. Candidates should enjoy working with children and be excited about learning. A degree in Environmental Studies, Education, Agriculture or a related field is preferred.
