Sims Hill Recruiting a Trainee Grower
Date Published: 12th April 2019
Sims Hill Shared Harvest is a Community Supported Agriculture cooperative based in Frenchay on the edge of Bristol. They are seeking applicants for the post of Seasonal Trainee Grower to assist their Farm Manager and Assistant Grower team during the busier summer months.
Sims Hill Shared Harvest grows mixed vegetables for around 120 members who each receive a weekly veg share throughout the year. Their vegetables are grown using organic standards across 3 acres of cultivated field space and 5 polytunnels. The growing area is split across the Sims Hill site and some space at the nearby Feed Bristol project which is run by Avon Wildlife Trust.
This post will suit someone looking to develop their skills as a market gardener/veg grower in a community setting. The trainee will work alongside the current growing team with a focus on teaching the trainee a broad range of skills associated with growing vegetables on this scale. They will be required to work with and supervise volunteers at times. There may be an occasional need to work alone and also carry out watering tasks some weekends.
The closing date for applications is 19 April 2019. To learn more visit https://simshill.co.uk/2019/04/08/seasonal-trainee-grower/
