The position is responsible to the Director and is a live-in position based at The Crossing 50 acre property on the Bermagui River.
A detailed position description can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Crossing is an independent, not-for-profit, environment education camp, situated on the edge of farmland, river and forest near the small coastal town of Bermagui, NSW. The Crossing site is permaculture designed and has been developed over the last eighteen years with the help of thousands of volunteers. Our programs involve young people in hands on permaculture, landcare and habitat survey journeys. We promote the building of skills through outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing and mountain biking. We also incorporate creative elements such as music and art into our holistic approach to learning.
While our programs are primarily focused on providing environmental learning journeys for young people aged 12 to 20 years, The Crossing also participates in and hosts community and adult education programs such as permaculture design, landcare and bee keeping. We can host groups of 12 to 30 people for short and longer stays.
