Join the Campus Farm Management Team at Matthaei Botanical Gardens!

Help lead the Farm as it continues to grow!

Engage in and learn about crop planning, transplant production, organic soil management, crop establishment, irrigation, organic pest and disease management, harvest, marketing and sales.

Also engage in organizational planning and development of the farm as it grows and evolves as a collaborative living learning laboratory for education, research, sustainable local food production and more. Learn about food safety as we go through GAP (good agriculture practices) certification, so we can begin sales to Michigan Dining halls.  Being in a Campus Farm Management role will provide opportunities for leadership development, skill development in organic vegetable crop production, and the opportunity to grow good food to feed our community.

Work is a wide mix of tasks, but make no mistake- we will get hot, cold, and dirty.  No previous farming experience necessary, but of course it would be very helpful! Ideal candidates are hard working, highly organized, self-motivated, team players who want to dedicate themselves to growing our Campus Farm.

Ideal candidates are interested in continued employment as Student Managers of the Campus Farm into the 2017-2018 school year and beyond and could join our planning sessions this winter/spring.

Don't miss out on this exciting time in Campus Farm’s evolution! Join Us!
