Current Open Positions at The Farmory
Farmory Aquaponics AmeriCorps VISTA Summer of 2021
Farmory Aquaponics AmeriCorps VISTA
Summer of 2021
Looking to get involved in aquaponics and gain real system design skills right in your community?
The Farmory is a fish hatchery and aquaponics education farm dedicated to serving the people of Wisconsin. We provide sustainable agriculture learning opportunities that build economic self-sufficiency and improve health, well-being, and the environment.
Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing segments of agriculture. Through our FarmoryWorks Aquaculture Technician and Entrepreneurship Programs people can come learn how to produce food for fun and profit. The Farmory is a hub of activity for the Navarino neighborhood, and we are working to seed the next generation of aquaculture and aquaponic farms in Wisconsin and beyond.
We are looking for an individual to join our team as the Aquaponics Summer VISTA member. We are a fun and hardworking crew that is committed to building both a strong and equitable local food system. The Aquaponics VISTA will help staff build and implement a new demonstration aquaponic system inside The Farmory building. This individual will be responsible for planning the process, assessing equipment needs, recruiting volunteer and in-kind donations and implementing both the deconstruction of our proof-of-concept system and building our new de-coupled aquaponics prototype system, as well as maintaining the system once it is built. The VISTA will also develop standard operating procedures for maintaining the new de-coupled system, as there will be some significant changes in equipment and processes from the proof-of-concept system. This individual will also train volunteers and staff in system setup and maintenance. Additional responsibilities may be added as experience and capacity increase.
This is a 10-week position starting June 7th, 2021 and ending on August 15th, 2021 with a minimum of 35 hours of service commitment per week. A stipend is paid directly to VISTA Summer Associates in the form of a modest bi-weekly living allowance from AmeriCorps VISTA. In addition, at the end of the term of service, an education award or cash stipend may be provided.
