GREEN ANIMATOR-CURATOR Job Description
Part-time position: 10 hours per week @ $25 per hour

Deadline to apply: Sept 17, 2017

CONTEXT

Westmount Park United Church is a small mostly elderly church community with a distinct identity. We worship at 4.30pm each Sunday, with a social time after worship.

In 2015 WPUC developed its Faith in Nature program and started with the Climate Café, a monthly educational meeting covering local and international concerns for nature and the environment. In 2016, we created an outdoor co-op garden that helped strengthen our identity as a living church.

In March 2017, WPUC  created the 600 sq ft space Nature Niche in our Sanctuary for an educational centre geared toward all ages. We started off with AV equipment, a hydroponic system growing plants and Canadian Wildlife Federation resources.

In June 2017 we won a grant for three years of funding for a new position of animator/curator for our Nature Niche. We are looking for an animator/curator comfortable working with all age groups who can help develop our Faith in Nature program as well as our Nature Niche.
