we are hiring for 2024

Full-time Farm Hand/Intern


Job Description:

As a farm hand, you are involved in virtually all farm tasks throughout the growing season. You will learn all of our methods including: field and bed preparation, nursery and direct seeding, greenhouse management, weed and pest management, harvest and packing, sales and marketing. Some minor construction, installations and painting are expected this season.


We intend to create an open, fun and healthy work environment. We want to attract like-minded people who share our passion for sustainable agriculture and ecological design. The work is definitely physically demanding (yes, you must be fit and preferably injury free), but it is also highly creative and deeply rewarding. 


Experience and Qualifications:

You have a positive, upbeat personality; an energetic, focused approach to the workplace; and stellar interpersonal skills – you are friendly, gracious and helpful. You take verbal, written and practical instructions easily, first mastering a task and then maximizing efficiency. You are a team player, balanced with the ability to work independently and in a self-directed manner. You enjoy physical, meditative work with a soft breeze on your face and a birdsong soundtrack in the background. In a perfect world you come replete with farming experience and/or education, but frankly a sincere interest in sustainable agriculture, love for the outdoors and a desire to have a truly positive impact on the environment and our community is of much greater value.
