Position: Farming Co-op member - Organic CSA and market garden co-operative farming position
Organization: Whole Village Farm www.wholevillage.org
Location: Caledon, Ontario
Dates: April 1st (or earlier) - Oct/Nov 31st 2012
Whole Village Farm has existed as an organic vegetable farm for 8 years. We employ all-natural methods and some permaculture techniques in farming; but are not currently certified organic (although the land that we lease is under conservation easement regulations, prohibiting the use of non-organic methods of farming). The garden space is 2 acres, and we will be doing a 38 member CSA project as well as the Orangeville market. Although, we are not yet an official co-operative, we are organizing this year to be our pilot year for coming up with an official structure for our co-op. Tori is a returning head farmer from last year at Whole Village and Jen is joining as co-farm manager this year. We welcome you to come and learn along with us!
We are looking for individuals with the ability and desire to live and participate in an intentional community, be a part of a farming co-op and farm 40 hours/week. Farming experience is required and engaged dedication to the business as a whole is essential. Intentional community living and/or co-op experience are assets.
Our (Farmhouse) Values:
cooperation, anti-oppressive organizing and relations, sustainable growth, direct communication, community well being, integrity in personal and work spheres, honesty, acceptance of varying abilities, work/life balance, compassion, understanding, curiosity, accountability for our actions as a community and as individuals, ecologically sound practices, systems and self awareness, social justice and diversity in people, practices and plants.

We look forward to hearing from you!
