UW hiring Farm Manager

UW is seeking a Farm Manager. Please share widely!

https://uwhires.admin.washington.edu/eng/candidates/default.cfm?szCategory=jobprofile&szOrderID=152395&szCandidateID=0&szSearchWords=&szReturnToSearch=1

The UW community has an outstanding opportunity for a year round, full time, Farm Manager, a professional staff position reporting to the Director of the UW Botanic Gardens.

The UW Farm is a student-staff-faculty organization currently working to create and sustain farming activity on the UW Seattle campus. The goals of the UW Farm are multiple, and include:
•Provide students with practical urban farming experience, from plan to production to table. •Create a model of sustainable urban production at the UW.
•Provide reliable, predictable and quality production for sales, including but not limited to the UW Farm CSA, the UW Club, and UW Dining.
•Provide production for other uses, including but not limited to: the UW Food Pantry project, student gleaning, UW Farm events and fund-raisers.
•Realize and celebrate traditional foods and farming practices established and maintained by indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest.
•Link the practice of urban farming directly to academic programs in the study of food, including but not limited to: coursework, independent research, capstone and culminating experiences, and other experiential learning opportunities.

The UW Farm Manager is responsible for developing and implementing student-farming activities in three locations across the UW-Seattle campus: •Mercer Court Apartments-planned urban farm
•The UW Farm production and research facility located at the UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture •The food production garden at McMahon Hall

The Manager works directly with students, staff and faculty to help plan and implement farming activities across campus.

Specific offices and programs aligned with the UW Farm include:
•The Center for Urban Horticulture (CUH) in collaboration with UW Botanic Gardens (UWBG) staff
•The UW Grounds director and staff, as the lead department within Finance and Facilities at the UW •The UW Landscape Architect
•Housing and Food Services directors, and staff
•The director, staff, and students from w???b?altx? – a longhouse-style facility (aka the Intellectual House under the Office of Minority Affairs) on the UW Seattle campus
that provides a multi-service learning and gathering space for American Indian and Alaska Native peoples •Academic schools, departments and programs throughout the UW

The Farm Manager is responsible for the sustainable maintenance of all of the UW Farm lands including the maintenance of all required certifications; for continued and creative production through a sustainable planting plan, implementation of a student-based farming plan and continuous outreach to production partners across campus; and for balancing the production and academic goals of the farm.

Intensive urban farming sites on campus must yield steady production. At the same time, farming sites must be places of teaching and learning, allowing students to blend academic and practical experience. The Farm Manager must create long-term urban farm managment plans that meet the needs of the campus, the community, and the students. Care needs to be taken to insure that all farmed land is visually appealing, safe, highly productive, and provides exceptional value to student learning. This will require practical abilities to manage and work on an urban farm; business skills necessary to build and maintain a balanced budget; and social skills necessary for interfacing with a wide array of operations and academic partners.

Food studies across the Seattle campus include courses, minors, majors and other experiential opportunities in undergraduate and graduate programs in at least 15 academic units, including a minor in Nutritional Sciences and a planned major in Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health within the School of Public Health, a “Food Pathway” within the Environmental Studies major within the College of the Environment, and courses in Anthropology, Biology, Environmental Science and Terrestrial Resource Management, Geography, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning.

Because the UW Farm has tendrils in campus operations and academic programs, a Steering Committee composed of representatives from both sides assists the Farm Manager in realizing the goals of the UW Farm. The Director of the UWBG chairs the Steering Committee. All long-term planning, including use of land and design of student activities on the land will be made in conjunction with the UWBG Director, and others represented on the Steering Committee as needed. Shorter time scale (day-to-day, weekly, seasonal)
decision-making for all student-farming activities will fall directly to the Farm Manager. The Farm Manager will be responsible for selecting appropriate on-the-ground methods as dictated by production needs, growing cycles, budget availability, and student availability on campus.

Success in the position and of the UW Farm will be measured by a series of outcome metrics as outlined in four Memoranda of Understanding (MOU), which collectively govern the existence of the UW Farm. These include, but are not limited to:
•Increasing the number and diversity of students associated with the UW Farm, and who play leading roles in Farm operation
•Increasing farm production in quantity and diversity, while steadily improving predictability in quantity, timing and delivery •Increasing the number and type of academic connections to the UW Farm.
•Maintaining Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) certification, and other standards necessary for the continued purchase of healthy foods from the UW Farm
•Balancing production and student research across the lands managed by the UW Farm •Maintaining a successful and sustainable business plan and budget

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

Under the general direction of the Director of UW Botanic Gardens, this position will perform the following duties with independent judgement:
•Manage all farming operations taking place across campus (3 sites, totaling approx. 2 acres), organize student activities, and work parties to ensure successful and adequate production.The Farm Manager will be responsible for developing and implementing student farming activities in the Mercer Court Apartment-planned urban farm; farming activities at the Center for Urban Horticulture; addressing the food needs of the McMahon dining facility with regard to the growing space on the McMahon Terrace; and collaborating with the director, staff, and students from w???b?altx? (aka the Intellectual House under the Office of Minority Affairs) in meeting their farming and food needs.
•Develop and monitor work plans and budgets to maximize the human and financial resources available to this program. The Farm Manager must create long-term urban farm
management plans including but not limited to an annual planting plan, an annual budget (expenses and income), a student intern plan, a service learning student plan.
•Provide an environment where students can achieve academic goals, including but not limited to: course-based work, independent study and independent research projects,
service learning, and capstone and culminating experiences. Interface with faculty who will provide research guidance and mentoring for farm-based students.
•Operate a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, increasing the number of participants as possible given other land-use and farming constraints.
•Manage farmland for weed and pest control as well as soil conditions, using organic food production principles, integrated pest management methods, and natural soil
amendments. Operate, maintain, and provide training on the use of motorized equipment used in crop production, including tractors and their implements, rototillers, weed abatement machines, etc.
•Work with students associated with the UW Farm to seek funding from the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) and other on-campus and off-campus sources to increase the UW Farm infrastructure as regards the sustainable and innovative practice of urban farming.
•Determine, evaluate and project the needs of UW campus partners, including but not limited to: UW Housing & Food Services, the UW Campus and Campus Food Pantry. Maintain Good
Agricultural Practices (GAP) Certification for the Farm. Adjust the farm policies and procedures to respond to those needs as well as comply with UW policies and procedures. Communicate on a regular basis with HFS staff and leadership in evaluating the success of production and make changes to accommodate changing needs. •Manage UW Farm events, including an annual Farm-to-Table community dinner.
•Report to the UW Farm Steering Committee not more than quarterly, and not less than twice annually. Produce and/or oversee the production of an annual production, and the annual farm budget. •Related duties as required.
