Seasonal Instructors:

McDowell Farm School is looking for seasonal instructors to join our education team, bringing their own strengths, creativity, and experience to the Farm School. We are looking for motivated individuals with a passion to teach, a desire to expand their education and agricultural skills, and share their love for the environment. Instructors teach and explore with the students in order to foster a sense of community, as well as create an appreciation and understanding of where our food comes from and the environment around us. Farm School staff assist with vegetable production and animal care, teach established lesson plans, lead night programs, and aid in program development. Instructors must have a college degree, possess CPR and First Aid certification, and undergo a background check.

Positions are available for the 2017-2018 school year, fall and spring seasons. Instructors' base pay is $290/week, with seasonal raises. Benefits include meals and housing in our newly built Grace House and duplex. All instructors have private bedrooms, a shared bathroom, a community kitchen, living room, laundry and expansive porches and rocking chairs to enjoy the awesome Alabama forests and beautiful sunsets.

If interested, please email resume and references to Ali Papp, Director, at ali@campmcdowell.com or call at 205.387.1806 ext 106.
