Agmenity designs, installs and manages agricultural amenities for homeowners’ associations and developers. Our interactive and community focused “agmenities” foster resident relationships and neighborhood engagement.

We are looking for employees who consider farming and educating a career. We take our work very seriously, and we select applicants who want to be part of a team, work toward a common goal, are looking
to be physically active and outside, and want to be a part of a group of people making the sum of the parts better than the individual.

As part of the skilled and dynamic team running a community based agricultural amenity, your responsibility will be to manage (as a part of a small team) the production and sales of produce, as well as community interactions with the farm. Farm Educators will spend much of their day out in the fields, but will also be required to complete duties in the office. This position will be involved in every aspect of the amenity at which they work, but will specifically oversee certain areas with a strong emphasis on sustainable, year-round vegetable production.
