Round the Bend Farm (RTB), a Center for Restorative Community, is located in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts and is a 115-acre working farm and educational non-profit. We are a living laboratory that cultivates, educates, and empowers people of all ages. We are devoted to the global paradigm shift toward hope and abundance by valuing diversity, modeling nature, and redefining wealth. RTB is seeking a passionate and motivated individual to join our team as a part-time Education Assistant. We are currently accepting applications until Monday, May 22, 2023. Anticipated start date is in early June.
As a part-time Education Assistant, this position requires a highly motivated and energetic individual; someone who is passionate about RTB’s mission, local food systems, and plant-based foods. It is expected that this employee will participate in the overall mission of RTB. This is a part-time (year-round, 25 hours per week) position that will work under the direction of our Executive Director and Education Manager, supporting our education programs and initiatives, within both our farming programs and our kitchen. This position will focus on learning the nuances of our diverse sustainable practices and applications, in order to be able to holistically and wholeheartedly understand and teach the work we do. Tasks will include engaging farm visitors (including RTB volunteers) of all ages in service learning, experiential education, and a wide range of inquiry-based learning projects; hands-on gardening; food processing; and various sustainability initiatives. Our Education Assistant may also participate in shared community cooking, food preservation, monthly Open Farm Days, our Manifest Love Food Truck, and occasional support of other farm projects as needed.
