The Village is open daily April through November for self-guided tours, demonstrations, and talks. The Village has 20 historic buildings and a working farm and garden.

What you will be doing: Design collateral materials and create other opportunities for branding across the campus (everything from an electronic invitation to a temporary poster to a Shaker t-shirt sold in the store) that support the mission. Plan/produce/execute social media campaigns, and collaborate with the marketing department to build exposure. Conduct research on other institutions, creating monthly reports on vital metrics.

In this special setting you will use both historic and modern farm tools and machinery. Because the Village also owns and manages farm animals, you will learn basic animal husbandry and participate in barn chores as needed.
