Permaculture farm looking for an intern. Room and board, plus a stipend is offered.
Located just 10 minutes from Duncan, BC we are close to hiking, biking and river swimming, this farm is located on 3 1/2 acres of flat land. We have use of 3 commercial greenhouses (both in ground crops and a seeding house), plus one acre of field in production. We farm year round, growing a multitude of veggies, herbs, berries and fruit. A wide range of skills will be learned – crop rotations, seeding, planting, harvesting, caring for chickens and turkeys, with an option to come to market and learn the sales end of things.
Expect to work a full 40 hours/ week (8 hours a day). Work is quite physically demanding. We provide a stipend, which will be decided depending on skill level, experience, etc.
Accommodation is a private room in the main house with access to kitchen, bathroom, living areas. Dogs and cats live in the home, so animal lovers are prefered.
We are looking for a dynamic, hard working and eager-to-learn person to help make this farm bloom.
