Job Description:

Moore Farms Botanical Garden Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by South Carolina native and philanthropist, Ms. Darla Moore, whose passion was to transform her family’s ancestral croplands into a place of beauty and horticultural excellence as well as a source of pride for the people of her hometown, Lake City. 

As her Garden evolved, so did Ms. Moore’s vision for the future of the property. She envisioned the Garden as a place for horticultural research, land conservation and education and as a place of enjoyment for visitors. Moreover, she determined that the Garden would become a gift to the ages to enrich the lives of others in perpetuity. 

We seek an accomplished leader with a proven ability to inspire others in reaching unprecedented levels of organizational excellence and quality.  This kind of leadership requires clear vision, acute planning skills and the ability to execute plans through collaboration and highly-participatory teamwork. 

The ideal candidate would bring a servant leadership approach characterized by compassion for people, respect for the past and vision for the future.  This person must demonstrate an ability to develop, delegate and empower talented staff and carry forward major projects and programs through a highly collaborative, sleeves-rolled-up, teamwork style.  We seek a leader who is an exceptional relationship builder whose passion is evident by his or her ability to clearly and enthusiastically articulate the Garden’s vision to stakeholders, visitors and the community at large. 

A passion for the mission of the Garden must be evident as well as knowledge of best practices in the management of nonprofit organizations.  Of critical importance is the candidate’s ability to transform ideas into specific, goal-driven project outcomes.  Solid, demonstrated skills in operations and business management are expected.  Strategic decision making in project prioritization, from basic infrastructure improvements to large-scale programmatic and capital initiatives, is essential to successfully carrying out the job.

A graduate degree from an accredited college or university is required.  Evidence of continuing professional education and/or leadership in regional and national professional associations is highly desired.
