Iím gearing up for a busy and exciting 2014 at Tollgate. We are expanding our reach and offering a greater diversity of programs and opportunities for community involvement. With that, Iím looking to recruit summer staff to assist with programming.
 
One of the newly added features of 2013 was a humble CSA membership program. The pilot turned out to be a valuable asset, as it supported the sustainable demonstration and production gardens for our summer camps
. For 2014, we will be expanding the CSA  and Iím looking to recruit a staff member to help coordinate. Itís important that this person brings a wealth of knowledge in sustainable agriculture. 
 

The other positions available support the summer camp programs. Iím looking for certified (or nearly certified) teachers and/or those with experience leading young people in an outdoor environment. These positions are easier to fill with qualified candidates from the southeast region but Iím looking for a diverse candidate pool.

Thanks for your help,
