Positions available

For the 2020 main growing season, our field crew positions will include full and part-time schedules. 

The field crew leader position is intended as a full-time and full season position. The ideal candidate for this position will have previous market farming experience, an outstanding work ethic, great communication, and problem-solving skills a plenty. The field leader will be available to begin at the farm in April and continue through the main growing season through Septemeber.

First year field crew and project leader positions offer some flexibility to include part-time and partial growing season commitments. For these positions, no previous farming experience is required, though proven experience in other related outdoor work or volunteering would be great. Some weekend and evening work will be required of all field crew on a regular and rotating basis during the peak market and harvest season (May-September).

Our field crew starting pay follows the BC minimum wage standards (increasing to $14.60/hour in June 2020), and will be negotiable based on previous experience, and a proven capacity to master tasks and take on new responsibilities.

 

Strong candidates for any of our field crew positions will have a physical and mental fitness level well matched for farm fieldwork. If you have no previous farming experience, a few ways to demonstrate this important match of preparation and ability for farming include prior working experience in outdoor and all-weather conditions, such as tree planting and landscaping. Do not hesitate to apply if you have any other types of outdoor work or volunteer experience that can show your capacity to work hard, continuously improve, and keep smiling through all weather conditions.
