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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-355-2853 for more information. Positions usually fill early.
Year Round Employment Opportunity for a recovering addict/former prisoner
Through the Many Hands Sustainability Center, our non-profit partner organization, we will be hiring an individual for the period between March and December 2015. Applicants must be from the target population of recovering addict and/or former prisoner. Compensation - $10/hour. Hours vary during the year. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included. Some wood cutting and management will compliment a broad range of farm chores. Most of our work centers around our vegetable and fruit operation with daily animal chores included. A willing heart and stepping up the plate hands are required.
