Assistant Grower/Apprenticeship in Wales - January 2016 start
Troed-y-Rhiw Organics, West Wales are seeking a keen and enthusiastic grower for a busy and diverse horticulture business on a 23 acre Soil Association certified organic farm.
You will be managing farm propagation, working at markets, harvesting and helping manage WWOOFers. Some experience of growing is required but we are willing to further train up the right individual. Pay is dependent on level of experience.
This year our members weekend and AGM was held in mid-Wales; hosted by Old Chapel Farm. This was the perfect setting for the event and we were treated to fantastic accommodation, great food and a warm welcome. The weather for late September was unseasonably warm too but the nights were therefore [shockingly] cold. Due to Old Chapel Farm's lofty situation in the welsh hills, the sky at night, devoid of any light pollution, was fantastic- so many stars!
For those interested in issues such as food sovereignty and tackling injustice on a world wide scale, this event may be of interest to you. The People's March for Climate, Justice and Jobs takes place in London on 29th November 2015 - yes, this Sunday!
Vacancy for Business Partner and Organic Vegetable Grower - Ragmans Lane Market Garden
Ragmans Lane Market Garden was established 2 years ago by a team of young growers. Based at Ragmans Lane Farm in the Forest of Dean, we have developed into a thriving small business, selling the produce grown on our beautiful two-acre site to local shops, restaurants and residents. We are now seeking a new grower/business partner. The successful candidate will work, and ideally share an on-site rented house, with the two existing members of the team.
