Seasonal Resident Gardener at Joseph A. Fiore Art Center

Summary: The Resident Gardener is responsible for establishing and tending a vegetable and flower garden at Rolling Acres Farm, as well as covering host functions for the Fiore Art Center.

More info at --- https://www.mainefarmlandtrust.org/public-outreach-new/jaf-art-center/

Note: While it is not a requirement that our resident gardener have his/her own creative practice, this residency does provide the opportunity to pursue creative endeavors. All mediums and genres are welcome, though we are especially interested in creatives who would like to explore how working in close communion with the land would inform and develop their artistic practice. However, creative practice of this nature is not part of the duties of this position.

Term of seasonal position: This position will begin May 1 and end October 5, 2018.

Compensation: $217.39-weekly salary

Additional details:
The Resident Gardener is required to reside at the Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres in Jefferson. Residency includes a private bedroom with a shared bathroom and shared living space.
The resident can expect to work up to 20 hours per week. While we understand and allow that the resident may need to be employed off-site part-time (20 hours/week max), we highly encourage the resident to spend time being involved in a creative practice as described above. There will be a studio space available to our resident gardener, and the opportunity to participate in monthly Open Studio Days.
Guests will be allowed according to certain parameters; however, this residential position is specifically for one individual. We cannot accommodate couples, children or pets. Moreover, due to the nature of the artists-in-residence program at Rolling Acres, maintaining an atmosphere supportive of the artists’ expectation of solitude and retreat, is imperative.

Full application details on our website - Applications due Feb. 1st - https://www.mainefarmlandtrust.org/job-opportunities/
