Position: Amarosia Organic Garden - Organic Apprenticeship Opportunities

Organization: Amarosia Organic Garden http://www.amarosia.com

Location: Shediac, New Brunswick

Amarosia Organic Garden is a 4-acre certified organic farm

located in Grande-Digue, New Brunswick, overlooking Shediac

Bay. We grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and cut flowers for

markets in Moncton, Dieppe and Shediac as well as having a

CSA and supplying a health food store and restaurants.


We are seeking up to two full time organic farm apprentices

for the remainder of the 2008 growing season (August to

October) who will live and work on the farm. The tasks are

many and varied and include planting and transplanting,

greenhouse work, pest, disease and weed management,

harvesting, processing, seed saving and potentially marketing.

The Candidates

Prior experience is not a requirement, but a 'can-do'

attitude, good time keeping, a willingness to learn and 

to try new things, a desire to take on responsibilities,

respect for the well-being of the farm and an acceptance

that sometimes it does rain but we have to dig carrots

anyway, is essential!

Past apprentices have included Environmental Science

Graduates, Plant Science Students, Botanists, Educators,

future Chefs and Journalists.


This is an unpaid position, however, the apprentice will

have little in the way of expenses given that food and

accommodation are provided.

An apprenticeship is not just a 'work for food' program. It

is a wonderful opportunity to learn new skills and develop

existing ones, to gain responsibilities, to experiment and

to share knowledge.

In addition we are always seeking key people for future

employment opportunities and an apprenticeship is a great

way to prove to us that we really should hire you next year!

We welcome Wwoofers (minimum stay of 3 weeks) to the 

farm as well, making it is a fantastic opportunity to meet 

people from all over the world with similar interests.
