Groundwork Somerville is hiring a part-time (approximately 20 hours a week) Lead Gardens Educator for our Healthy Education programs in Somerville, MA, to start around mid-August in preparation for the 2013-2014 schoolyear.

The primary roles of the Lead Gardens Educator are to manage and run Groundwork Somerville’s garden- and nature-based after-school programming in the 9 schoolyard gardens located across Somerville, to update existing club lesson plans and develop new ones, and to recruit, train, and coordinate volunteer club assistants to help lead those clubs.
