Do you want to join a team of driven educators working to get kids excited about healthy food, building community and connecting with the natural environment? Are you ready to be challenged and gain new skills? If so, we want you to join our team and grow with us!
Growing Gardens uses the experience of growing food in schools, backyards and correctional facilities to cultivate healthy, equitable, communities. We believe that access to nourishing, culturally-appropriate food is a basic human right. We are working to become an anti-racist organization through our programs and internal operations.
Youth Grow is a program of Growing Gardens that collaborates with diverse school communities to develop sustainable garden education programs at 11 schools. We offer interdisciplinary, experiential learning opportunities aimed at helping children connect with nature, and grow and eat their garden harvests.
We are seeking to hire an educator who is enthusiastic about using gardens to teach environmental science, explore food traditions and spark curiosity.
