Employment Opportunities!

We are seeking 2 additional employees for the 2023 summer season!

You can learn all aspects of organic small scale farming and organic systems. The scope of work includes preparing beds for planting, planting seeds/transplants, harvesting fruit, mulching/weeding, watering/feeding, weeding. Special projects! 

We are looking for an individual who is hard-working, physically fit, and is enthusiastic about sustainable organic farming. Farming is physically demanding work that involves the ability to squat, kneel, bend down and preform repetitive tasks in all kinds of weather! Day to day work is busy but is also rewarding work. We harvest beautiful flowers, herbs, and fruits. The growing of these plants requires a lot of support! Much of this work is solitary, and extremely task focused, but the feeling of accomplishment when a bed is prepped and planted is very satisfying.

Good communication is a must, as is the use of common sense. Please contact us if you are positive, self-motivated, respectful of others, a hard worker, a non-smoker, and are considering organic agriculture in your future!
