part-time seasonal gardening help wanted
Rolling Hills Organics is a certified organic market-garden operation selling mostly at farmers markets in Toronto. Located in the lovely countryside of Northumberland County, near Rice Lake, between Peterborough and Cobourg and one and a half hours drive east of Toronto, our 55 acres of natural lands include 3 acres of market gardens. It is an idyllic spot, a few kilometres to the nearest village of arty Warkworth.
Work consists of maintaining (planting, weeding, watering) crops of lettuce, salad mix, carrots, beets, sunflowers, lavender & other herbs, harvesting, washing, weighing, packaging, and taking them to market. Our growing season is extended by produce from our two 1000-square-foot hoop-houses, with the first harvest at the beginning of May, through to December.
Farmer Peter annually seeks two willing, enthusiastic, positive individuals to help out from May to August inclusive, preferably from the local area, two to three mornings (10 to 15 hours) a week. Preference is given to those with an outgoing character displaying an interest in organic farming, local food production and marketing, also experience of summer physical work outdoors.
