Position closing today!

The GROWW coordinator position is created and funded by a community
partnership including Madison Farm to Fork (MF2F), Madison Conservation
District (MCD), Madison Valley Ranchlands Group (MVRG), Madison River
Foundation (MRF), and Ennis School District (ESD). The position is a result
of four years of work in the school system by two AmeriCorps positions:
Food Corps (sponsored by MF2F and ESD) and Big Sky Watershed Corps
(sponsored by MCD). These positions successfully established a secure
foundation of curriculum in the school system, supported by administration,
teachers, and parents.
As a result of the accomplishments created in the school and with the Good
Thymes Summer Camp, there is a need to provide support for these efforts to
continue. The GROWW coordinator position would allow the legacy of these
successes to carry on, without the risks and limitations of AmeriCorps
programs.

Summary of Position
The sponsoring partners are hiring an education coordinator position to
provide necessary support for garden, natural resources, outdoor,
watershed, and wildlife programs in partnership with Ennis School District
and hopefully in adjacent school districts. While this is a newly created
position, the curriculum, infrastructure (school garden), and local support
are already in place and embraced by the school system and community. The
position will be responsible for conducting education activities in
classrooms and garden; field trips to local farms, rivers, forests and
National Parks; teacher workshops; the Good Thymes Summer Camp and
occasional events.

Position Details
The position will require an average of 20 hours/week, 46 weeks of the
year. The actual hours may vary from 1 to 40 hours per week depending on
activities. With successful additional funding, the position will expand to
35 hours/week, 46 weeks of the year. Program work in the school system will
cease from Thanksgiving through the first week in January. The position
will be paid $15.00 per hour.

Paid time off and health insurance are not provided. During the summer,
this position will serve as Director for Good Thymes Camp (GTC) and be
responsible for maintaining the Outdoor Classroom (School Garden) facility.
The position will report to Ennis School Board and the Good Thymes Camp
Organizing entities
Interested applicants should submit their resume, cover letter, and 3
references as a single PDF electronically to sunni at madisoncd.org by 5 PM
MST, Wednesday March 18, 2015.
