Work with Us

Interested in Volunteering or working with us?

We are old!   Theresa’s hips feel like she has been an organic farmer since the dawn of time.   So – the only way we can bring you drop dead gorgeous flowers (and cool the planet with our ecological practices at the same time)  is if we have some help!!   We have 2 ways you can volunteer:  at casual ‘work-bees’  or through our ‘Flower Buds’ program.

Work-Bees

Enjoy some fresh air. Learn some skills.  Take home some loot (plants, flowers…) .  No commitment.

Just email us that you are coming so we know how many to expect!! If its rainy,  we’ll email you with the revised plan.  Sometimes we divert work into the greenhouse,  other times we just cancel.    Dress in layers. Wear a hat, sunscreen and bring repellent.  (The mosquitos might not bother you if you live in the city –  but we have St. Agatha mosquitos.  Trust us –  they are different.) There are ticks in the area – so wear socks and good shoes or boots.  No sandals. No pets please.  If you bring children – be prepared to supervise them constantly,  or we’ll ask you to come back another time.   We are a working farm –  lots of dangers about.

Become a Flower Bud

Commit to volunteering 1 morning a week (Friday, Saturday or Sunday).  We’ll reward you with pick-your-own flowers, perennials,  and seeds galore.  Volunteer for a month, and receive a free workshop registration.  Starting in June,  you will receive a 10% discount in our new on-line organic farmers’ market in the week’s you volunteer, and you’ll be able to pick up local organic produce right here at our farm!    Just email us to sign up.  We are looking for 6 core Flower Buds for the season.

 

Looking for Paid Work?

In addition to our volunteers, we are looking for someone to work 2 days/week from mid April to the end of October. You can pick the days.  We pay $15/hr,  with an end of season bonus if you stick with it until the end of October. Email us with your questinos and send your resume and references if you are interested in applying.
