A workshare is an exchange of work for a share.
Workshare members are valued members of our farm, and we depend upon their help producing quality vegetables.
We offer several field-hand workshares for our vegetable CSA’s each summer. No experience is necessary – training happens on the job.
Agreeing to a workshare means you are committed to treating this position with respect – willing to work your scheduled hours, planning in advance for absences, and arriving with a good attitude.
Workshare spots are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday mornings and Fridays. Workshares are divided into 4 hour increments – typically 8:30am-12:30pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm on a designated day of the week. You choose the time slot and day that works for you from the available spots. (If these don’t work with your schedule – we may be able to find other times.)
