Company description
Hello! I am looking for part time help to assist with my small farm in Oakton, VA - Preferably someone who is studying Permaculture and/or Horticulture and would like an opportunity to help further develop, design and maintain 700sq ft of garden beds and grow over a dozen new plantings of fruit trees, berries, etc across a 2acre piece of property.
I'm a busy Dad who, unfortunately, does not have a lot of time to work in the garden as much as I would like and have big plans to expand.  I thought it would be great if I could find someone passionate about this type of work and would like the opportunity to support the 2020 growing season while doubling the amount of new plantings.  I can be flexible with the type and scope of work, hours, etc.. I will be re-introducing layer hens this Sumer with the possibility of adding a few other animals.
