Smart Farm of Barrington

The Smart Farm is Growing and 2021 is a pivotal year. We are seeking a permaculture enthusiast that is versed in environmental studies and has the confidence to lead groups, create curriculum and help build our environmental learning center. As we maneuver the pandemic landscape outside curriculum is more important than ever.

This is a ground floor opportunity as we build for the future. At this time, this is a volunteer position but ultimately we see this as a paid role.
