The Square Root Farmers are hiring one more part time team-members to round out our crew this year!
About Square Root Farm
Our farm is entering it’s 12th season on our two-acre field just north of Victoria in Central Saanich. We are certified-organic and our growing techniques were developed to fit our small farm footprint. This means most of the work is done by hand with care and precision. Our farm is small, but we concentrate on efficient production of a steady supply of veggies so our days are often busy and fast-moving to keep up with our schedule. We sell at a weekend farmers’ market, to a local farmers’ marketing cooperative, and to several restaurants.
About the Job
Our small team takes care of all the planting, weeding, harvesting, washing and packaging of our crops. As part of our farm team you’ll have the opportunity to work inside the greenhouse, out in the fields and in the packing area and potentially at the farmers market. Many of the daily jobs can be repetitive, but we don’t work alone and we try to have a good time doing it. Harvesting is a huge part of just about every day of the week.
On harvest days your duties will include:
- cleaning and setting up harvest tools
- picking and bunching crops to order
- washing and packaging vegetables for market and restaurants
Outside of harvest times
- seeding and planting crops out into the soil
- weeding by hand and with hoes
- seeding vegetables in the greenhouse
Compensation & Schedule
Pay starts at $12/hr plus access to our popular “free veggie store” in the cold room! We’re looking for a person who has some related experience who can work our three most important days each week: Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and possibly Saturdays, who can help us right through October.
