We are currently hiring! We are looking for a part time gardener to join our team.
Common Ground Garden Farmer Position
Common Ground Garden (commongroundgarden.org), a project of Ecology Action (www.growbiointensive.org), is seeking a part-time (starting at 30 hours/week) Gardener to manage our sustainable education and demonstration garden using the GROW BIOINTENSIVE® (GB) system. The Gardener will coordinate maintenance of the garden, the volunteer program, and will share responsibilities with the Education Program Manager for the adult education program, yearly events, fundraising activities, and other items as needed.
GB produces high yields, while using a fraction of the water, nutrient and energy resources per pound of food produced per area, compared with standard food-growing practices—and grows soil at the same time—in an increasingly resource-scarce world that is rapidly losing farmable soil.
