ORGANIC FARMING

Position: Farm Internship 2020
Type: apprenticeship with room and board, monthly stipend
Organization: Common Ground Farm
Location: near London & St Thomas, Ontario
Housing: room & board, see below

Our farm is on 40 acres, including 25 acres of fields, 5 acres of barns and paddock area and 10 acres of forest. We are located about 5 minutes SW of St.Thomas, ON and about 30 minutes drive from London. About 10 minutes drive straight north of Port Stanley on Lake Erie.

We are a small-scale vegetable grower, using intensive growing methods and we sell directly to the consumer through 2 farmers markets and a CSA.  Over the past 7 years we have grown to a point where we are financially stable.  We grow year-round and have done a lot of work with season extension and storage.  This is an excellent opportunity to see how a small organic vegetable farm runs and get experience with growing,  harvest, building and marketing vegetables directly to consumers.  We're looking for motivated individuals who want to learn how to farm.  No experience necessary, but if you have previous experience we have positions and opportunities for those with some experience.

We provide room and board and a monthly stipend in exchange for work on the farm. We are also part of CRAFT SW Ontario and interns will participate in CRAFT events. We make it a point to provide our interns with a wide range of experience and learning on the farm.

Internships start as soon as March / April and go until November or December.
