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 Fall 2020, beginning late August through early December. as well as Fall 2020. Instructors' base pay is $290/week, with seasonal raises. Benefits include meals and housing in Grace House, Hilton House, or duplexes. All instructors have private bedrooms, a shared bathroom, a community kitchen, living room, laundry machines and expansive porches and rocking chairs to enjoy the awesome Alabama forests and beautiful sunsets.
