Summer Garden Program Manager Internship

The Willow is a proud new member of the City of Lawrence's Common Ground Program. We're breaking ground on a community garden to grow fresh vegetables and herbs for the individuals and families we work with in our community. The garden is at our administrative office and is also a volunteer opportunity for staff, volunteers and the community. A garden manager is needed 2-8 hours a week during the summer to perform a variety of duties including: recruiting and managing volunteers, program development, social media opportunities, tending the garden, adhering to organic gardening practices, monitoring our compost bin, and harvesting produce. If you like getting your hands dirty, spending time outside, and working with others, this internship is for you! This is our first year of the program, so we are looking for a self-starter to bring enthusiasm and ideas to the project. While some gardening and volunteer management experience is helpful, it is not required. Contact Kristine Chapman, Director of Community Engagement, to apply.
