Each year there are several students employed in the Market Garden as “Lead Student Farmers.” Lead Student Farmers help to manage, produce and sell crops, as well as provide instruction, training, guidance and leadership to less experienced students participating in the Market Garden. To qualify for one of these positions, a student should understand and have experience with organic crop production. Additionally, it is ideal that applicants understand how the Market Garden functions, and possess desire to lead and educate fellow students throughout the farm.
Application and Hiring Process: New job openings at the farm may occur unexpectedly throughout the year. Therefore, interested students who meet the necessary qualifications can submit an application to Raoul Adamchak in person or by email at any time. A job description and application form are available here.
