WWOOFer at Abbey Home Farm

The Organic Farm Shop, Abbey Home Farm is offering a great opportunity for a hardworking passionate about organic growing person who wants to be a vegetable grower to join our gardening team in March 2017, with a view to becoming our next 2 year apprentice soon after.

We are looking specifically for someone who has already had some experience as a longish term WWOOFer or seasonal worker.

The successful applicant needs to have a ‘can do’ flexible attitude and be a good team player. The majority of the time will be growing vegetables but there will also be some educational sessions to organise and work in the shop once or twice a month (full training given for both).

Interviews will be at the beginning of January 2017. If you are interested please check out more details and how to apply here.
