CSA Employment Opportunities
For all positions drive, dedication, commitment, and enthusiasm are essential. So is a sense of humor, and a willingness to adjust/adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and unexpected challenges. All candidates help promote Spoutwood's educational mission and its overall keynote of Hospitality. Note that all positions sometimes involve hard physical labor, in a wide range of weather conditions! Willingness and ability to work well with others, including one's fellow apprentices and interns, permanent Spoutwood staff, CSA shareholders, and the general public is vital.
Please direct inquiries, resumes, and cover letters to Spoutwood Farm at email@example.com.
Apprentices are expected to take on significant responsibility. Some involvement with other farm activities - including festivals and educational programs - will also be included. CSA Associate Apprentices receive a stipend and free vegetables, but cannot be guaranteed lodging on the Farm. We will endeavor to work with you to address your lodging needs.
These are full-season positions.
CSA Interns are typically college students who are interested in experiencing community supported agriculture form the inside. Interns may assist with all aspects of CSA operations, but do not have the level of responsibility expected of Apprentices, and need not sign up for the full season. CSA Interns normally do not receive a stipend, but we will work with you to obtain credit at your school, if desired, and you will receive vegetables from the CSA gardens.
These positions vary from one month to full season.
