VOLUNTEER / INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY
Position: Certified Organic Market Garden Assistant
Organization: Hughes Hill Farms
Location: Kelly's Cross, Prince Edward Island
We have approximataly 80 acres of certified organic
farmland and approximately 20 acres still in transition to
organic. We grow approximately 3 acres of certified organic
market garden and milk a small herd of registered holsteins
and jerseys (in transition to organic). We love what we're
doing, but are finding it hard to keep up with the pace on
our own. We have 3 young children (7, 6, 4 years old)
and are very busy!
We can offer a semi-private room in our rec-room (divided
by a curtain from the rest of the room), meals, and some
spending money on good market days. Must be friendly,
out-going (important if you would like to help at the
farmer's market), enjoy children, and be at least somewhat
familiar with farming. We would welcome you to be a part of
the family and be involved in our activities. We don't work
on Sundays (except for livestock chores). Must be fluent in
A vehicle is not essential as we could pick up the
successful applicant when they arrive on PEI. We would
take someone at any time - up until October. We are a non-
smoking household and are located in central PEI (approx.
30 minutes from Charlottetown, Summerside and Cavendish).
