APPRENTICES/ WORK-TRADE/ PARTNER

Wanted: CSA Veggie box interns
Type: apprentice/partner/volunteer in exchange for accom, shared meals
Organization: The Quarry Farm
Location: Salt Spring Island, BC

Welcome to the Quarry Farm! We are a small community of growers and nature lovers who were gifted with the opportunity to look after 35 beautiful acres of forest, wetland, mountain bluffs and developing pastures and cultivated areas. We have a beautiful house with all modern amenities and accommodation as well as several other accommodation arrangements.

We have a large commercial greenhouse and poultry seasonally for own use and sales. We have lovely swimming lakes nearby and a swimming pond on the property. We have a greenhouse (20'X100') and approx. 4 ac. of arable land (the rest is forested, covenanted bog, ponds, trails). The property was originally developed to be subdivided and has three wells and several access roads.

The varied topography makes it so that there are several microclimates with good drainage and sun exposure in areas and heavier, cooler growing conditions in others. We would like to see the farm being self-sustaining and producing sufficient food to feed everyone living here (we currently have 8 community members living here).

We are looking for one or two apprentices or partners to help with a new CSA veggie box program we are launching this year. We offer accommodation in a separate building with power and water (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom) or in a room at the house (shared with two others). Meals are shared at the main house or can be arranged differently if desired.
