Landscape Lead Position
Since 1975 Village Homes has been a nationally and internationally recognized community for our use and management of our landscape. The following principles have and will continue to guide us in our evolving concepts of sustainability and ecological design of the 68 acres that are Village Homes.
Increased use of Native plants
Decreased use of water
Ecological design – keep green waste here, create our own mulch, etc
Continued use of permaculture theories and practices
Ensure we have an environment which produces food (fruit trees, grape vines, etc), supports personal gardens and requires daily maintenance
Continued use of sustainability theories and practices
Increased community involvement in our landscape
We are recruiting to fill our Landscape Lead position. We are looking for someone who will work with the community to move the identified principles forward. The structure here is unique in that we have a volunteer Board, which provides leadership and direction to the Manager and Landscape team.

This is a “hands on” position in that we expect the lead to understand the vision, the realities of maintaining our landscape and be able to carry it out while also directly working in the landscape that makes up the village.
