Trainee Grower Opportunity for 2019
We are currently looking for someone to join our small team of dedicated growers, as a trainee grower, from April to October 2019.
This is a brilliant learning opportunity for someone who wants to go on to run a market garden or work in community gardening. We are a three acre CSA farm, providing veg shares from June to December, selling wholesale produce to local businesses year round, and teaching accredited horticulture courses in liaison with Bicton College.
You will be involved in all aspects of running the market garden, including propagation, cultivation, fertility management and crop care. There will also be opportunities to get involved in other aspects of the farm including marketing, events and working with volunteers, depending on your interests.
In exchange for 4 days a week we can offer £100 stipend and fresh vegetables. Caravan accommodation is available if desired. A job share arrangement would also be considered.
To apply, please send us an email explaining why you are interested in joining us for the year and your current growing and other work experience. Deadline for applications is the 28th February 2019. Informal interviews/work day at the farm will be held in the second week of March. For any questions and to apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the moment we have limited volunteering opportunities but we hope this will change next year- watch this space!
