Hello colleagues,

Below is a email from Tom Howe, Director of the Putney School Summer Program in Putney VT. This would be a great job opportunity for the right person, so please share with your networks.  As a Putney alum, and a past staff person of the summer programs, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Best wishes,

"Thank you for getting this on the UVM extension list serve! I'm confident that the right person is out there. We're seeking someone with teaching experience who enjoys working with teens and who has experience working on a farm. My hope is that this person will be excited to think broadly about the environment yet down to earth enough to create a dynamic three-week curriculum that makes good use of our working farm. Our goal is to support the next generation as they figure out how we're going to move forward locally and globally in ways that are sustainable. This is our third year running the program and we're likely to expand it in the coming years. Great opportunity for the right person!"
