As you may know, most of the food served in our restaurant is grown in our own gardens and prepared in our kitchen. Our gardens and the associated infrastructure require a lot of daily tending, and since increasing our garden area and production for the restaurant, it has become necessary to increase our workforce accordingly.
The internship position would require a hardworking individual who is physically fit and responsible. Experience would be a bonus but it is not a requirement. Just a willingness to learn.
Duties would include general gardening, tilling, weeding, watering greenhouses, cleaning barns, tending livestock (chickens, sheep and goats), planting and harvesting, fencing, some maintenance of buildings and equipment, cutting hay, composting, beekeeping, picking daily produce for the kitchen, picking rocks, building new gardens and collecting kelp for the gardens. Garden workers come to work here for shorter periods of time from all corners of the world through the WWOOF program . These workers need to be oriented to the workings of the farm and gardens, and you would be enlisted to help with this process as well.
We need a person who can commit to at least 4 months (beginning of May until the end of August) or ideally until later in the fall, and will be able to provide a consistent effort and positive attitude throughout.
Many young people pass through here in the course of the season from diverse cultures and various parts of the world, either to work or visit. It is exciting, exhilarating and seldom dull, as there is no limit to the challenges and opportunities available. It is also hard work but it can be ultimately very satisfying.
Room and board in Upper Amherst Cove and financial details will be discussed with the applicant.
