Garden Associate (Part-Time, Temporary)

Opened to the public in 2010, The Edible Schoolyard includes a half-acre urban, teaching garden and kitchen classroom. We offer hands-on experiences that focus on fresh, seasonal food, wellness, and outdoor play. Using a seed-to-table philosophy, kids and families learn about the systems through which food is grown, harvested, prepared, and shared as a meal.  By giving kids a greater knowledge of and connection to what they eat, we inspire them to make better choices for their health and the health of their communities.

This position is ideal for someone committed to nurturing our children and community through food education, who would like to grow their skills and experience in maintaining a public garden, and who practices collaborative communication. There will be opportunities for developing as an educator and grower through this position.

Edible Schoolyard Muralist (Contract Work)

The Miriam P. Brenner Children’s Museum is seeking an experienced muralist to help us transform an overlooked nook of downtown Greensboro into a public work of art and education!  With the help of our friends at Piedmont Natural Gas Foundation and the Downtown Resident’s Association, we are tackling a street-facing, retaining wall at the corner on East Lindsay Street from North Church Street to Isley Street.

This space provides an opportunity to both add a pollinator pathway within the planting space between the wall and The Edible Schoolyard as well as transform the cement retaining wall into a piece of local art that will connect both bees, butterflies, and people from the parks and attractions downtown to the parks, farmers market, and attractions in East Greensboro.
