We are looking to hire two full-time farm workers for our 2020 season. Our farm is located near Duncan on Vancouver Island, about an hour from both Victoria and Nanaimo. We are certified organic and currently grow a wide range of vegetables on 3 of our 7 acres. This will be our 8th season farming here, where we sell direct through the Duncan Farmers Market and a small CSA, and wholesale to a food hub.
We are looking for workers who are passionate about agriculture and interested in working on a farm to continue learning and gaining experience as they work toward their own farming goals. Or perhaps you just enjoy being physical, working with your hands outdoors!
Either way workers will have the opportunity to learn as they work closely with us on the daily tasks of vegetable production. If you are interested in a career in farming yourselves this is a great opportunity to be involved in the continued development of a farm- learn first-hand what it takes to run a sustainable farm for a living!
Work will include most aspects of production: from seeding, cultivating, weeding, harvesting and processing, to packing CSA boxes, helping with projects, and potentially selling at a farmers market. Starting wage (no prior experience) is $14.60/hour, or negotiable based on experience. There is also opportunity to take on more responsibility depending on interest and experience. While most of the work will be on-farm there is the opportunity to also work our busy Saturday market with us in Duncan, depending on your interest.
Rental accommodation for an individual or couple is also available in a tiny house that includes a kitchen (but shared bathroom in the main house), for $300/month for 1 person, or $400/month for a couple.
We are looking for a commitment from approximately early April until the end of October, but are flexible around actual start and end dates. Candidates must be legally entitled to work in Canada.
