Openings: Garden Manager and Gardeners

Thoreau Farm is looking for a Garden Manager and gardeners with organic gardening experience to volunteer in our 1878 kitchen garden.

This is a demonstration garden to introduce visitors to the birth house of Henry David Thoreau to the type of vegetables, herbs and flowers that might have been grown in the Thoreau family kitchen garden.

Our garden manager is retiring after10 years of service, and has agreed to serve as a resource for the new garden manager.

Volunteers will carry out numerous gardening duties and have the opportunity to learn about heirloom plants and organic nutrient-dense gardening.

Volunteers should be willing to commit to two-to-six hours a week, with the Garden Manager starting in late February/Early March and the gardeners starting in mid-April and ending in early October. Flexible schedule.
