Launched in 2019, the Piedmont Environmental Council’s Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows is an 8-acre farm operation that grows produce for local food pantries, utilizing organic and regenerative techniques. The farm consists of 4.5 acres of vegetable production, 1 acre of orchard and berries, naturalized areas to support pollinators and beneficial insects, as well as a small flock of laying hens.
Engagement with volunteers, schools, and community organizations is a vital part of the farm, which not only provides opportunities for the public to engage with their local food system and give back, but also fosters lasting relationships with the community. Highly visible through its productivity, use of a volunteer workforce, and engagement with the community, the Community Farm promotes the importance of land stewardship, access to fresh foods, and
mutual aid. Through the collaborative efforts of the Gilberts Corner Farm and Land Manager and Community Farm Coordinator, volunteers actively participate in local agriculture, local residents have access to farm tours and educational workshops, and families in need throughout Loudoun County benefit from increased access to fresh, healthy, locally-produced fruits, vegetables, and eggs.
PEC is seeking to hire a Community Farm Coordinator to manage the Community Farm. The Community Farm Coordinator will possess strong experience and knowledge of sustainable farming with an interest in regenerative growing methods. The farm coordinator must demonstrate an aptitude to engage and cultivate new relationships within the Loudoun County community, be willing to collaborate with the Gilberts Corner Farm and Land Manager to develop and lead educational workshops, as well as coordinate, manage and maintain volunteer groups throughout the growing season
