Join Our Team: Now Hiring Online Course Coordinator

The Cornell Small Farms Program is hiring! We are excited to share the application for our newest team member, a part-time Online Course Coordinator (Extension Aide IV).

Over the years our suite of distance learning opportunities for farmers has swelled to include over two dozen courses with two dozen dedicated instructors. The Online Course Coordinator will take on most of the administrative tasks related to operating the courses, maintaining quality and consistency, and assisting with making them more inclusive. There is room to grow in this position, to teach or facilitate courses over time, if desired.

We are welcoming applications through May 15. If you have a passion for small farms, helping new farms get started, building a more equitable future for farming, we hope you’ll consider applying. Come join our dynamic team! We look forward to meeting you.

If you have any further questions, contact Erica Frenay, Online Course Manager for the Cornell Small Farms Program.

Erica Frenay

Erica has had several different roles with the Small Farms Program since she began working there in 2005. In 2006 she co-founded the Northeast Beginning Farmer Project, and launched the first online course in 2007. For 10 years she facilitated and organized the Beginning Farmer Learning Network, a professional development network for service providers in the Northeast who support beginning farmers. She has shepherded the development, publishing, and updating of several key SFP publications, like the Guide to Farming in NYS, the On-Farm Poultry Processing Guide, and the Guide to Direct Marketing Livestock and Poultry. As the SFP’s menu of online courses surpassed 20, she shifted her role primarily to managing these courses, providing ongoing training to instructors, and ensuring a high quality experience for students.
