Cornell Small Farms is hiring

The Cornell Small Farms Program and Northeast Beginning Farmers Project are hiring a full-time Project Coordinator for two new beginning farmer initiatives. Please share this news far and wide so we can recruit a great pool of applicants!

Click here to apply!

Job Description 
Beginning Farmer Project Coordinator  
Extension Support Specialist I (Band E/Exempt/39 hours week)
Department of Horticulture
College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Ithaca, NY

  

The Cornell Small Farm Program (SFP) engages in research and extension projects and collaborations that support and enhance the viability of small farms in New York. This Coordinator will support the Northeast Beginning Farmer (NEBF) Project, a major SFP effort focused on beginning farmer training, their support networks, and informational resources. 

  

The department is currently searching for a Project Coordinator who will oversee all aspects of a USDA project designed to 1) facilitate military veterans entering into farming as a career, and 2) improve long-term viability of"advanced" beginning farmers (defined as farmers operating 3-10 years).  Facilitate the development and implementation of project work plans by collaborators for each component of the project, coordinate timelines, manage relationships, and synthesize evaluation data into reports.  Lead the outreach for the overall project, publicizing events and impacts of the project and collaborating with the SFP outreach staff to achieve these goals. Convene advisory groups for all aspects of the work.

  

The Project Coordinator will also implement specific projects to provide training for beginning farmer service providers and collaborate with other organizations and individuals to develop new informational resources for beginning farmers. Work closely with the SFP Beginning Farmer Project Manager and the SFP Director to insure participation and engagement of partners and stakeholders and share outcomes with other organizations nationally.

  

The coordinator will work very independently, making decisions to foster the success of the project and to achieve the desired outcomes. These decisions will often require creativity as well as a good understanding of the abilities and resources of project collaborators. Develop and implement surveys that will target farmers,educators and others interested in supporting beginning farmers, and help the collaborators use this information to modify work plans and tasks. Monthly travel and overnight trips to visit with project collaborators around NY state are expected.

  

The Project Coordinator will be a full member of the SFP staff and is expected to develop close working relationships with all of the other SFP Associates, participating in staff meetings and other SFP events.  Will also represent the Project and Program at state meetings and provide presentations to farmers and other stakeholders about the SFP efforts. Contributions to the monthly SFP e-newsletter and quarterly magazine expected. Responsible for supervising 1-2 undergraduate students and supporting project collaborators.

  

This position is renewable annually, based upon performance and funding.  The position is currently supported by  a 3-year USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) grant.

Qualifications
 

Required:

  • Bachelor's degree in agriculture, communication, education, biology, natural resources, or related field preferred.
  • Two-three years' experience in public education, either formal or informal, as well as demonstrated understanding of farming.
  • Proven skills in project management and coordination are essential

We Are Nature, Working: Lessons from Ecology for Social Structure Design

Evening talk & discussion with Dave Jacke and Patty Love

Nature operates based on a set of foundational laws and principles by which all systems must abide, or they fail. The principles underlying the social structures of natural ecosystems can teach us much about organizing human societies. We can design systems that minimize stress and competition, and maximize cooperation, harmony, productivity, and diversity, while allowing each community member to remain true to their intrinsic nature. Social and economic justice and cooperation are actually more Darwinian than most people think! This evening workshop will begin by getting into some ecological nitty gritty. We’ll then explore together how the design of Rochester’s public food forest project, Lots of Food, a program of Seeking Common Ground, Inc., embodies ecological principles and how it might more fully express them.
Saturday, January 31, 7-9 pm $5-40 suggested contribution, no one will be turned away for lack funds.

Ecological By Design: Honing and Deepening Our Design Processes

One-Day Workshop with Dave Jacke

Our current mainstream culture unjustly damages ecosystems and people, leading to unsustainability.  We humans need to rapidly redesign our lifeways and thinking—our culture.  We all design all the time – whether we know it or not.  By learning to design our cultures consciously and skillfully, we can co-create a resilient future for ourselves, humanity, and the planet.

In this one-day class we will dig deeply into design process theory and practice.  We’ll experience effective observation, awareness, and thinking tools that deepen our design skills and our self-understanding.  Through lectures, discussions, experiential design exercises, and more, we’ll hone, clarify, and deepen our ability to design thriving ecological and cultural systems.  This work can reframe your sense of who and what humans are, what is our ecological role, how humans can inhabit nature, and how nature lives within and through us.

Participants should bring a sketchbook, notepad or other firm drawing surface and paper, some favorite sketching tools (ink or graphite) with at least one fine point and one broad tip pencil or marker, and, if you have it, a copy of Edible Forest Gardens volume 2.
Sunday, February 1, 9:30-4:00 (BYO lunch; tea & coffee provided) $60-100 sliding scale fee, some scholarships available upon request  
Pre-registration for Sunday is required!

Dave’s Bio:  A student of ecology and design since the 1970s, Dave Jacke has designed gardens, homes, farms, and communities throughout the U.S. and overseas since 1984.  The primary author of the award winning two-volume book Edible Forest Garden (www.edibleforestgardens.com), he holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Simon's Rock College and a M.A. in Landscape Design from the Conway School of Landscape Design.  In his teaching and his design work, Dave has always explored the interrelationships between people and land as interpenetrating whole systems, grounding his vision and theory in practical and concrete reality as much as possible.

 

Patty’s bio:  Patty is a permaculture designer, teacher, and emerging author based in the Genesee River Valley (Rochester, NY).  She studies and practices regenerative and resilient design, permaculture, and edible forest gardening.  Her work is informed from her education, reading, time in nature, parenting, and spiritual pursuits.  She holds two Permaculture Design Certificates in addition to traditional BS and MALS Degrees.  In addition to her business, Barefoot Edible Landscape and Permaculture, patty is the Program Director for Rochester Permaculture Center and Lots of Food, programs of See(k)ing Common Ground, Inc.

volunteers needed to facilitate Permaculture Park work party Saturday, 10/25

Hey folks, I am looking for a couple volunteers who might be able to co-facilitate a work party next Saturday, 10/25 from 12 NOON-4pm at the permaculture park project. I have a conflict that day and cannot make it. If you are willing and able, I would be happy to meet with you during the week to go over the very basic plan (weeding and mulching), assemble and deliver tools, and meet afterward if needed for clean up.

Thanks, Josh
