Location: Uphill, Nelson, British Columbia
Keep expanding your food growing skills with this fertile freelance opportunity.
Are you an experienced gardener, farm intern, or wwoofer looking for growing space for the 2019 season?
We are a family of four living in Uphill Nelson with a large yard space with established garden (including fruit and nut trees, berries, some irrigation, herbs, huggle culture beds, greenhouse in need of repairs).
Our summers are packed with work & fun and we haven’t been able to take full advantage of our garden’s potential.
We are looking to trade the use of our space and tools as well as a garden input budget (for seeds, starts, amendments, tools, & other supplies) in return for a portion of the harvest.
Depending on schedules there may also be the chance to learn about western herbalism in a clinical context, regenerative community building practices, parenting, food preservation and preparation, fermentation, butchery as we’d love to share our many skills with you.
Our expectation is that the area under cultivation will be able to produce enough to support our family’s produce needs as well as the gardener’s family and have a surplus that can be sold or transformed into value added products.
Our family values regenerative growing practices.
We can help you with finding low cost housing if desired.
