Duties include: Weeding, harvesting, tending farm stand onsite & at markets, processing sales, propagating, transplanting seedlings & planting.
This is an opportunity to learn how to start/run a small farm operation: Set up irrigation lines, pick varieties, create value added products (aka make lavender goodies), distill for oil, weed, plant seeds/seedlings, work with the public, work on ways to weed less, create social media adds, tend to Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land & #1 job for farming- learn how to prioritize.
We look at this as a mentoring relationship in which we learn from each other, but we welcome experienced farmers/gardeners who just want to work outside.
