Urban Farm Coordinator Needed!


Do you want to join a dedicated, hard-working group that is promoting
sustainable agriculture and sustainable living?  Then apply today to become
our urban farm manager at our Butte headquarters. farm view
<https://www3.thedatabank.com/hm/427/image/farm_view_aug2014.jpg> 

We are seeking an urban farmer or gardener to work 30 hours per week
seasonally managing NCAT's Small-Scale Intensive Farm Training (SIFT) farm.
The one and a half acre farm serves as a training ground for intensive
farming in Butte's high elevation cold climate. In its fourth year of
vegetable production, the farm is an educational model for people of all
ages to learn how foods grow, how to raise ecologically sound crops without
chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, and how to keep farmland
healthy for future generations.

The coordinator will build on past efforts to continue to develop and
maintain a commercially-viable farm to be used for educational purposes.
S/he will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the farm. The
coordinator will work with NCAT's Agriculture Specialists on a farm planning
team to design a soil fertility plan for the entire property, which is
approximately 5 acres, and to develop and oversee the educational component
of the farm. The coordinator will also be responsible for determining a
marketing component for the farm that is both profitable and located within
a reasonable distance of the farm.

You must have several years of farming experience with similarly scaled
operations and experience with growing in zone 4 or less and be familiar
with raising vegetable crops using season extension and crop protection. The
successful applicant will also have experience in training apprentices and
volunteers. A background in marketing small scale crops would be of
particular interest.
