Working Shareholder Opportunities

One of the constituencies of our workforce is working shareholders. For 4 hours of work during the 22 week CSA season (M, W, F mornings 8-noon), volunteers receive as barter one large share of produce. We share lunch at noon in pot luck fashion. It is a good opportunity for someone interested in learning the CSA process from a hands on perspective (there are some animal chores too), and to become a part of our farm community. We are looking for folks who can work with alacrity, take direction well, enjoy all sorts of weather – much of which is not considered ideal- and are timely and responsible. Contact Julie at julie@mhof.net or 978-355-2853 for more information. Positions usually fill early.
