Contacts for each area are listed below.  Please get in touch with any (or all) —they would be thrilled to work with you to find the perfect fit for you and your schedule—whether you can dedicate an hour, a couple of days, or more:

Current Positions Available!

DEVELOPMENT:

Join our Development Committee! Why? Did you know that Ambler Farm is one of the few amenities which is free and open to the public 365 days a year from dawn to dusk? Did you know Ambler Farm is a low to no-tax amenity? Ambler Farm is a place to connect with the land, animals, ourselves and each other whether participating in our youth programs, attending one of our fun events or just walking through the sunflowers…Other town owned amenities charge admission. Farms require lots of maintenance on the agricultural side. The historical buildings on the Farm also require significant maintenance and restoration. Once renovated, the Raymond Ambler Farmhouse will host educational programs, activities, and events but we need help fundraising. Please contact: Ashley Kineon with development questions.
