Position: Nursery Intern
Duration: 6 weeks, starting June 20th. Possible extension to 8 weeks.
What we offer: During the course of the 6-8 week period, the intern will work with a small team and be integral to our apple nursery. You will learn how to graft and propagate apple varieties, and other fruits, with the bud grafting technique. Orchard care and tree care for all stages of growth will also be taught.
What we ask: We are looking for a reliable, hardworking intern to work about 30 hours per week with us on our 5 acre farm. During the grafting season works starts at 7am. The work will be both nursery related and helping with the general farm upkeep. Interest and experience in horticulture are needed for this role.
Accommodation: There is independent accommodation on the farm for the intern. Most meals are the intern’s own responsibility, but there are of course some opportunities for shared meals and farm produce will be provided.
We are passionate about what we do, and hope that our intern will share this passion and interest in apple trees with us!
