Job: part-time grower at Norwich Community Supported Agriculture
By Ed Mitchell 27th April 2011
This is from our friends in Norfolk who are setting up a Community Supported Agriculture project:
Norwich FarmShare, a brand new Community Supported Agriculture scheme based on 2 acres at Hewett School and 5 acres in a field near Postwick, is looking for a part-time grower to join us, producing chemical free veg for 100 members and the Hewett school kitchen every week.
The role will be a supporting one and involves working with the head grower. Experience of field scale veg production, both outdoors and in protected cropping, is ideally preferred. Drivers license essential.
The applicant will need to be flexible with their time during the week and throughout the seasons. Hours are negotiable but 3 to 4 days a week will be required from March until October dropping to 1 to 2 days a week in the winter months. £6.08 per hour (with a view to increasing this over time).
Email Laura for more details and a full job description. Application deadline – May 6th. Interviews pencilled in for 11th of May to start mid-June or as soon as possible thereafter.
