Quail Springs Permaculture (QS) is looking for a qualified, driven individual to join its educational program team.

This person will be working closely with the Youth Program Director, the QS community, and instructors to plan and run activities for the programs.
Open until position is filled
The Animal Systems Coordinator oversees the animal systems (currently a 18 goat herd and 90 chickens), by coordinating and working directly with the core farm team and farm interns. Oversight includes maintaining 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 re-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 Coordinator reports directly to the Co-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 role in updating the permaculture design of the farm in conjunction with the community.
ROLLING ADMISSIONS: MAR 1ST • JUN 1st • SEP 1st • DEC 1st
