ORGANIC FARMING / APPRENTICE

Position: Farm help
Type: full-time live on-farm, monthly stipend + room & board
Organization: Sapo Bravo Organics
Location: Lytton, Fraser Valley BC

I own and operate a 5 acre, off-grid, certified organic farm outside Lytton, BC. I am looking for one worker for the season – April to October. I am looking for people who are hard workers and enjoy solitude and peace. As the farm is a 45 minute drive away from the nearest town, it is important that apprentices do not require town access on a regular basis, but are happy spending their free time in nature. I love working with a team and discussing what we are doing or our views on life and need kind, compassionate, real people to work with. I do not require an apprentice with previous farm experience, only the willingness to adhere to the schedule, show up and work until the job is done. I value apprentices who ask questions, learning what they feel is important for them to achieve their goals.

Workers will be expected to:

  • care for seedlings in the greenhouse
  • form beds
  • set up irrigation
  • plant seedlings
  • build tomato trellises
  • prune and tie tomatoes as they grow
  • flush irrigation systems
  • move irrigation in the orchards
  • look after laying hens
  • prune fruit trees
  • pick fruit (tall ladders are used so no fear of heights is preferred)
  • pick, sort and pack all produce
  • weed whack/mow orchards
  • come with me to deliver/sell to Vancouver occasionally
  • trouble-shoot irrigation issues (including hiking the water line)
  • and of course WEED!

A monthly stipend is provided, over and above room and board.
