Food Forest Manager

The Land Conservancy is looking for the right person to help us with our food forest! Our goal is to transition a conventionally farmed field into a place for the community to learn about growing a diversity of food crops, using regenerative practices, permaculture, agroforestry and ecology as our guide. The Food Forest Manager will oversee, organize and facilitate The Land Conservancy’s Apple Creek Community Food Forest. This is a new project with a lot of opportunity for the right person to make a difference, starting at the ground level. Our food forest is a place where people will learn about a diversity of crops that can be grown for food, health and profit in McHenry County. We need a person with good organizational skills that can take this project and run with it. This is not an entry-level position, but one that requires self direction and a passion for perennial agriculture, agroforestry, permaculture and regenerative agriculture.
