Seeking Full-Time Biodynamic Gardener

Seeking a Pioneering Biodynamic Gardener 

Inner Fire is a proactive residential healing community supporting individuals wrestling with debilitating or traumatic life challenges which typically lead to mental (soul) health or addictive challenges who want to avoid the mind altering, psychotropic medications in the first place, carefully taper to a level which works for them, or who seek support having tapered off the benzodiazepines and are still reeling from the withdrawal symptoms. We are not anti medications but rather believe in the power of choice.

Embedded in the beautiful nature of Brookline, VT, on 45 acres of both wooded and open land our multifaceted program offers holistic healing through artistic therapies, counseling, gardening and forestry, cooking and a healthy diet, a supportive social environment and more. www.innerfire.us 

At this time we have hens and are beginning to clear a wood to create more open land for milking goats and pigs. This is a wonderful opportunity for an experienced creative, resilient person with enthusiasm and initiative!
