Assistant Farmer, Badger Rock Urban Farm
The Center for Resilient Cities seeks an experienced grower with additional experience in garden-based or outdoor education to work directly with the Farmer-in-Residence in all aspects of chemical free, year-round vegetable production. Badger Rock Urban Farm is an educational and production farm located on the grounds of the Badger Rock Center, 501 E. Badger Road, Madison, WI 53713. The site also hosts Badger Rock Middle School and is a field site for a School of Urban Agriculture that will launch in fall 2018.
Growing takes place on the farm, in the hoop house, and in the greenhouse. Under the direction of the Farmer-in-Residence, duties include helping in day-to-day aspects of food production, assisting the middle school garden class and other educational programming as needed, overseeing interns and volunteers, assisting with materials sourcing and gathering, and assisting with overseeing food distribution at Badger Rock Community Market through our weekly student-run farm stand during the growing season.
