Position: Organic Farm Interns
Organization: Horse and Garden Farm
Location: Sweets Corner, West Hants, Nova Scotia, Canada
Horse and Garden Farm is entering its 3rd year producing a
wide variety of greens and vegetables, a raspberry u-pick to
open this year and a hay crop. The farm will certify organic
We are in the midst of reviving an old farm that had been
abandoned many years. In addition to our gardens, projects
abound! including construction projects, fence building,
re-shingling, painting, cleanup in our small woodlot and
along fencelines, creating perennial gardens and maintaining
active compost windrows.
Located in the beautiful St.Croix valley near Windsor NS, we
provide to several local restaurants, 2 farmer's markets and
this year, will offer a 25 member CSA Community Supported
The farm will welcome 4 interns this season (May 1 - Oct 31)
two of whom are already confirmed. To complete our team,
we are now seeking 2 interns with practical mechanical and
carpentry skills, as well as an interest in organics and
permaculture. The ability to drive a standard transmission
is essential and comfort and experience with the tractor and
implements and farm machinery in general is a real asset.
The farm offers accomodation, meals and - with any luck - a
bonus to interns at end of season. Accomodation is provided
in 2 comfortable 18' travel trailers overlooking the farm
pond and river, with outdoor privy and shower. A bunkhouse
project is underway.
We are located centrally in an area with several organic
farms and cooperate with others on projects and with an
active social life.
The farm offers a great opportunity to work hard and play
hard, learn through doing and through demonstration, take
initiative and responsibility and see all aspects of a small
farm start-up. The area is well known for its musical events
and jams, great swimming holes and beautiful vistas. We
are located 45 min. from Halifax.
We hope to have our team in place by April 15.
