Open until position is filled
The Animal Systems Coordinator oversees the animal systems (currently a 12 goat herd, 70 chickens, and 13 rabbits), by coordinating and working directly with the core farm team and farm interns. Oversight includes increasing the health and productivity of each system through improved designs and strategies created and implemented with the farm team and community. There is ample room to improve on the systems of tracking, and a chance to organize the farm records and documentation. A large aspect of this position is the coordination and management of the farm team, although the Animal Systems reports directly to the Farm Manager and Executive Director, who will provide support and financial oversight. Advice is also readily available from the on-site Farm Advisors. There is also a choice opportunity to take a large role in updating the permaculture design of the farm in conjunction with the Farm Manager and community.
ROLLING ADMISSIONS: JUN 1st • SEP 1st • DEC 1st (2019)
