The scope of the Westgarden is broad, and has three main areas of focus: organic food and medicine production; community education and volunteer engagement; and healing experience.
The Westgarden Steward will work to maintain the health of this established garden including creating and implementing planting plans, organizing and teaching classes, and fostering an open nurturing environment for visitors. Additionally, this individual will work on building new projects, strengthening community engagement in the space, and finding more ways to work collaboratively with the Place Team to serve the wider needs of the land.
