The Homeplace on Green River continues to search for a full-time employee who will join hands with the Executive Committee in planning and implementing events and programs, expanding our public relations and social media footprints, fund-raising, marketing, coordinating volunteers and much more.
The hiring is the result of an $85,000 grant provided by the Schmidt Family Foundation. Homeplace will raise an additional $25,000 in the next 12 months that the Foundation will match. Applications will be accepted through August 14.
Homeplace is dedicated to the protection and promotion of rural American culture through the sustainability of agriculture and natural resources using education, conservation and the economic opportunities of agri-tourism.
Homeplace also hosts spring and fall family-oriented festivals and a variety of performances in a historic restored barn theatre. The farm is designated as Kentucky’s Outdoor Classroom. Educational activities for school students, scouts and other groups are hosted throughout the year.
This is an amazing opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our area’s students through “hands on” educational programming, while preserving our rural culture and working on agricultural and natural resource research projects that will make a positive impact on our region and our communities for years to come.
Homeplace is located at 5807 New Columbia Road (Hwy. 55), Campbellsville, about halfway between Columbia and Campbellsville. It is a joint effort of Adair, Green and Taylor counties and is funded from grants, farm income and individual contributions.
