Boston Community Gardens Job Posting

February 13, 2001

Dear Friend of the Gardens:
After four and one half years as the City of Boston's Sr. Landscape
Architect, John Berg has resigned.  Those of you who know John can
appreciate how much the City of Boston will miss his quiet, steadfast
commitment to the development of community open space in all of the City's
neighborhoods. John will be leaving us at the end of February.  While he
will be impossible to replace, we are now beginning to recruit candidates to
manage the Grassroots Open Space Program.

The following is an outline of the Grassroots program and duties required of
the position: 

		The DND Grassroots Program supplies funding, land and
technical assistance to support the development of community-based,
nonprofit-owned neighborhood green space projects in Boston.  Area residents
participate in making and managing these landscape improvements and all open
spaces created, improved or preserved are for community benefit.  Recent
work has included community gardens, pocket parks, community-supported farms
and open space preservation.  

		The candidate should have a background in landscape
architecture and open space planning and experience with community and/or
sustainable development work.  The candidate will provide design and
technical assistance services to project teams and to DND Housing Division
staff and will collaborate with other organizations and agencies to develop
the DND's open space agenda.  Additional duties include both contract and
project administration and fiscal oversight.  The candidate should be well
organized and have a sense of humor. 

		This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced candidate
willing to work with nonprofit partners to pursue issues of neighborhood
redevelopment and open space, housing, and community greening.

This is a staff position with the City of Boston.   Boston residency is

Please give this some consideration and send your referrals and suggestions
to me.  If you would like further information I can be reached at 635-0325.
Thank you.
