Master Farmer Application

Slow Food East End is seeking applicants for a Slow Food Master Farmer Position to support the expanding network of Edible School Gardens on the North and South Forks of Eastern Long Island.

GOAL

Master Farmers support the growth of the local school garden movement by advising Edible School Garden representatives on the planning, creation, maintenance and/or sustainable continuation of their school gardens. As each school garden is different in scope, ascertaining the needs and goals of the individual school gardens and suggesting ways to achieve these goals using local networks and resources will be an important aspect of this position.

SCOPE OF POSITION

Master Farmers cover approximately six schools in a geographically designated area (on the North Fork or South Fork) but can sometimes work on special projects that align with their talents and skill sets. Master Farmers are not expected to maintain gardens; they are expected to offer advice that will promote the sustainability and success of garden programs.

Deadline for applications is Friday June 9, 2017
