Are you interested in getting involved? We are currently organizing our help for the 2021 season! We will be hiring for some (very) part-time, paid positions in the field, and we are also looking for folks who want to volunteer regularly in trade for a CSA share. These are great opportunities to work hard, eat well, and have a bunch of fun with our team.
Part-Time Field Hands:
We are currently looking to hire for a couple more part-time, paid positions for 2021. We need help weeding the garden, harvesting produce, and processing the food for our market outlets. Looking for folx who love to work outdoors, can squat for hours, have good attention to detail, like to share about gardening and eating, and can handle our very specific but few hours each week.
The job will be two days per week, Tuesday and Friday, from 8 am – 2 0r 3 pm, mid May to mid October. In addition to your pay (which is DOE), we offer plenty of fresh produce to get you through the week. We work hard, but always have a great time with our staff! It is mostly field work (lots of squatting in the rows, in all of the conditions), and some washing and processing work. Must have reliable transportation to the farm east of Bayfield. Email Emily to apply or to find out more: email@example.com
Help at our Market Booth:
We are hiring for a fun and excited market assistant on Saturdays at the Durango Farmers Market. Help us at our booth from 7:30 -11 am, and receive a stipend, all the veg you need, and breakfast in trade for your time and good attitude and attention to detail. Must be outgoing, good with cash handling, and cool under pressure. The market season goes from mid May through the end of October. We would love if you could commit to the whole season, and understand if you can’t make it every Saturday, we can grant some ( a few) weekends off. Email Emily if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer for 2021:
Our volunteer spots are full for 2021! Thank you, Bayfield.
Work one, half-day per week in the garden in trade for a CSA share. This is a great, low pressure way to spend time with us in the garden! If you are a returning volunteer, yay! We can’t wait to work with you again. If you are new to us and interested, please read the info below, make sure that you can commit to the full season, then CLICK HERE TO APPLY (we are full, so this link is disconnected). We have limited space on each shift, so please fill out the application and we will let you know if we have a slot for you.
We have volunteer teams two days a week, Mondays and Thursdays, from 9 am – 1 pm, late May through early October. You choose which day works best for you to come regularly. We are looking for people who can commit to their shift for the whole season, but don’t expect anyone to be available every single week. We can be flexible with your summer schedule, just let us know your needs and availability.
In trade for your time a dedication, we give you a full CSA share, plus extras when available.
Bring your kids (we have a shade hut and a trampoline in the field to keep them occupied, must be at least 4 years old and able to hang without you for chunks of time), but please not your dogs.
We mostly will be weeding the garden and harvesting during the volunteer time. Please be aware that the work requires squatting for extended periods of time, so you need your knees and back on board 😉
