New Learning Journey is the nonprofit behind Knoll Farm and First Light, and is based in the Mad River Valley of central Vermont. First Light is a community of 65 conservation organizations in Maine working with the Wabanaki tribes to rebuild relationships and return land. Knoll Farm in Vermont is a retreat center and farm that creates a refuge for leaders in land and social justice work through various programs. Our farm is also known for raising purebred Icelandic Sheep and Certified Organic pick-your-own blueberries.
The Making Refuge Fellowship will work with both of these major projects, working with First Light in the shoulder seasons and Knoll Farm in the summer months. It would suit any alums or students taking a year away from school who are interested in bringing community onto the land and guiding folks through that experience. The Fellowship is open to two people who will be a close team from April through October: living, learning, and practicing what it is to make refuge alongside Peter Forbes and the Knoll Farm community. Fellows will have the opportunity to test themselves in a variety of leadership roles and will receive training and mentorship throughout the duration of the fellowship on the big-picture issues that Knoll Farm is involved in. Fellows will seek to understand and contribute to the work, and witness the deep impacts our approach to place-making and service provides for others.
This seven month position is primarily based at Knoll Farm in the Mad River Valley of Vermont with travel to Maine, averages 40hrs/wk, is paid a salary of $27,500, and housing is included.
