Rich Earth Institute seeks Executive Director

Are you the next Executive Director for the Rich Earth Institute?

Rich Earth Institute, Inc. is a research and demonstration non-profit founded in 2012 and located in Brattleboro, Vermont. We are known as an innovative environmental organization focusing on solutions at the intersection of sanitation and agriculture to ensure clean water for our communities and our planet. The impact of our work extends nationally and internationally through partnerships with academic institutions, industry leaders, and allies in the field of ecological sanitation. Rich Earth launched the first and largest community-scale nutrient recycling initiative in the United States. Nutrient recycling harnesses nutrients in human urine as an untapped, locally derived, and abundant source of fertilizer.

We operate the country’s first permit to produce sanitized Class A fertilizer from nutrients in human urine. With this demonstration project, Rich Earth is simultaneously reducing nutrient pollution, conserving water, supporting local agriculture, and preventing carbon emissions from synthetic fertilizer production and distribution.

  • Our Vision: A world with clean water and fertile soil achieved by reclaiming the nutrients from our bodies as elements in a life-sustaining cycle. 
  • Our Mission: To engage in research, education and technological innovation to advance the use of human waste as a resource.
We are searching for a capable leader who will help us continue to bring our cutting-edge research and development into the wider world. The Executive Director co-directs all activities with our Co-Founder and Research Director. Together, they are responsible for the organization’s consistent achievement of its mission. As Rich Earth embarks on the next level of its growth, the Executive Director will guide the organization towards developing new forms of sanitation infrastructure and new ways of thinking about waste management.
