Green Fire Farm is a certified organic, 40-acre farm on Vancouver Island. We grow a diverse mix of vegetables and fruits, raise livestock in rotation, and provide fresh, high quality foods to people who share our vision for a vibrant regional food system.
For the 2021 growing season, our plan will be to offer full time and part time field crew positions. Our first prioritity with filling the positions will be to find qualified people who will be committed to working with us from April-October, 2021. Additional field crew positions for the peak harvest months will also be available.
Our field crew starting pay follows the BC minimum wage standards (currently $14.60/hour), and will be negotiable based on a balance of previous experience, a proven capacity to master tasks and take on new responsibilities, eligibility for farm focused wage subsidies that may be available, and the farm's capacity to carry a higher wage with changing markets and economic realities.
Strong candidates for any of our field crew positions will have a physical and mental fitness level well matched for farm fieldwork. If you have no previous farming experience, a few ways to demonstrate this important match of preparation and ability for farming include prior working experience in outdoor and all-weather conditions, such as tree planting and landscaping. Do not hesitate to apply if you have any other types of outdoor work or volunteer experience that can show your capacity to work hard, continuously improve, and keep smiling through all weather conditions.
