Horticultural student / trainee wanted (April – Oct)

Mar 5, 2013

Stroud Community Agriculture is a 50-acre biodynamic CSA farming on two sites in Gloucestershire. We have been established now for 10 years and provide meat and vegetables for our 190 members. Please see our website at www.StroudCommunityAgriculture.org .

 

We offer an opportunity for a student/trainee to work with us over the summer (from April till Oct, actual dates are negotiable). The work will mostly be on the 7 acre horticultural unit though there may be a little work with the animals. We are looking for someone who has a keen interest in producing vegetables and food, is physically fit and can work alongside others on the farm team. We offer accommodation either in a mobile home or in a small caravan, with a kitchen and bathroom shared with another student. We provide some food from the farm and pay £60/week pocket money to cover all other expenses.

If you are interested please email me at mark@plumtucker.co.uk saying a little about yourself and why you might like to work with us.
