Vanley Fresh Foods is looking for a helping hand! We grow vegetables, salad greens, and herbs at Ragley Farm – a 1912 heritage farm and community hub located next to scenic East Sooke Park, about 40 minutes southwest of Victoria. Produce will be sold through a vibrant on-site market and to local restaurants. Baked goods and dairy products are also produced and sold on-site.
We’re looking for a positive, hardworking, and community-minded individual who is passionate about growing organic food and will be available full-time from late April to October. Some previous farming/gardening experience is required. You’ll be working mainly with me – a grower with three seasons of experience – under the guidance of a farmer with two decades of experience. You’ll be involved with planting, irrigating, weeding, harvesting, delivering, and must be willing to work some Saturday markets.
You’ll be asked to take responsibility for part of the garden, and will learn about various aspects of running a farming business. You’ll be compensated with a monthly stipend and board (rustic accommodation and shared meals). Please contact Maarten at email@example.com to express your interest in this opportunity.
