Snowy Mountain Organics is seeking Lower Mainland-based Farmers Market Helpers for the 2019 summer season!
About Snowy Mountain Organics
Snowy Mountain Organics is a 25 acre farm, in which 12 acres are planted with an assortment of fruit trees. In order of ripening we have Cherries, Apricots, Peaches, Plums, Apples (including quince) and Pears. We have been growing organically for 35 years, and have focused on creating a diverse collection of new and heritage (delicious) varieties.
We simply enjoy being in sunshine, and playing with the earth, in a respectful and sustainable way.
We sell our produce at farmers markets in the lower mainland every weekend for the duration of the summer, and are looking for farmers market helpers with a vehicle / truck / van to help get our fruit (and at some markets the collective’s veggies) out to farmers’ markets in Vancouver and Burnaby.
We are looking for someone who is friendly, outgoing, trustworthy, and knowledgable about organic growing techniques. Basic math skills, willing to visit the farm in Cawston, and and attitude that wants to learn. Must own a truck or van to transport produce.
Operate farmers’ market stalls at select markets in the Lower Mainland and Burnaby (and potentially Squamish) to sell our delicious fruit.
Days worked: Summer weekends
Hours: Varies between 1-4 markets per weekend
Wage: $15/hr plus vehicle expenses, or contract work negotiable
Please send your resume and cover letter ASAP to Lauren at Snowymtnfarm@gmail.com.
