Jobs include everything from planting trees, harvesting fruit, to marketing, wedding coordination, educating school groups, being a chef, customer service, carpentry, painting, business management, and learning how to do the tasks that no one likes to do for the sake of your goals (like cleaning!) and create systems so that you do less of that.

You will have educational reading materials, and we will provide access to organic farming workshops at other farms throughout the term.
