You will be involved in all aspects of running the market garden, including propagation, cultivation, fertility management and crop care . There will also be opportunities to get involved in other aspects of the farm including marketing, events and working with volunteers, depending on your interests.

In exchange for 4 days a week we can offer £75 stipend and fresh vegetables. Caravan accommodation is available if desired.
