    An exciting opportunity has opened up to join the Schumacher College Horticulture team as a Teacher and Deputy Head Gardener. We are looking for an experienced horticulturalist with a passion and knowledge of sustainable food growing; you will be able to teach and lead diverse groups; be an excellent team player; a skilled communicator; with a flexible approach to work and a commitment to values of Schumacher College and Dartington.

The college believes that how we grow our food is central to who we are as humans and how we interact with the world; we have developed a six month immersive hands on programme of ecological and regenerative food growing using principles of agroecology and permaculture – the Schumacher Practical Residency in Sustainable Horticulture.
