Slough Farm is a non-profit educational farm, located on Martha’s Vineyard that strives to be a resource for the Island community and beyond. Our farm grows for donation and provides food for our local community, as well as to support our on-site programming. We farm with nature, using organic methods and compost made on-site to ensure healthy crops and healthy soil. In addition to practicing ecological agriculture, Slough Farm aims to become an educational hub supporting farmers, writers, artists, craftspeople, community organizers, and thinkers both on and off the island.

This is a Director Level strategic role and a unique opportunity to contribute to building the vision and identity of Slough Farm from the ground up.
