JOB: Community Garden Coordinator position at University of Maryland

Here’s another exciting opportunity at the University of Maryland!  Please share with potential candidates, including soon-to-be graduates.

The Community Garden Coordinator, with a coalition of community partners, will facilitate the creation of an intergenerational training ground for small-scale, intensive, sustainable agriculture.

The Coordinator will:

1. Collaboratively develop a concept plan for the garden with input and approval from neighborhood residents and partner agencies.

2. Coordinate the building and development of the garden.

3. Fundraise $2,000 for garden materials and coordinate installation with volunteers.

4. Recruit 150 partner agency representatives and neighborhood residents to participate in workdays, educational workshops, and ongoing garden maintenance.

5. Develop a system for measuring impacts of the garden on participants.
