A Camphill branch in Jerpoint Abbey, Thomastown, Co Kilkenny is advertising for a manager of a social farm . The position is full-time.

It states that the group are looking for a "dynamic social farm/horticultural co-ordinator to join our support team for a social farm project at Jerpoint Thomastown, Co. Minimum One year’s post qualification experience of working with adults with intellectual disability in a similar setting. The successful candidate will be motivated to support participants with their personal plans and co-ordinating the training of volunteers".

Camphill Communities Ireland is a charity that works with people with intellectual disabilities as well as other types of special needs.

Social farming is the practice of offering activity on family farms as a form of social support service. In social farming the farm remains a working farm at its core but invites people to participate in the day to day activities of the farm.

Therefore the farm is not a specialised treatment farm; rather, it remains a typical working farm where people in need of support can benefit from participation in farm activities in a non- clinical environment.

It also creates the opportunity to reconnect farmers with their local communities through the opening up of their farms as part of the social support system of the community.
