Headline: Great opport. to settle in Seattle, learn to Urban Farm on 0.2 Acres while getting housing. You farm

This is a beginner Urban Farm internship. You need to come with very specific ideas of what you are wanting to do. You need to be physically and mentally (having the skills) able to carry out those ideas. There is a new 1000 sq ft living space (livingroom, kitchen, shower, lg. closet, & bedroom) on the third floor for one person. As long as you are working the land at least 4 hrs per week you may use live in that space for $600/month. So you will need to have a source of income outside of the property.

Right now the whole garden is in large cloth pots filled with organic soil, it is moveable.

Prime opportunity for someone skilled in farming to come check out life in the NW. 15 miles from downtown Seattle = daytime 40 minute drive.

Watch Curtis Stone videos from Kelowna Canada to know what I am thinking about.

You do need to have extensive farming or landscaping or gardening experience &/or Agriculture

Headline: Berry Pickers

Kokopelli Farm in the Sebastopol countryside is experiencing our largest crop of boysenberries in our 24 years of farming with organic practices. We are currently seeking people to train how to "think like a boysenberry," so we can then hire them during the early morning June and July harvest. Our pickers usually have other jobs or are taking classes, since this is not full-time work. We pick seven days a week, starting at sun-up and ending sometime in the morning. Camp-out spaces are available. Pickers can select the days they want to work. As soon as someone gets hungry, farmer Shepherd Bliss (a retired college teacher) cooks breakfast, often oatmeal, which was the usual breakfast on his family's Iowa farm. Then we sit around a rough picnic table and talk about farming and whatever. Contact Kokopelli, the trickster wounded healer/flute player, at 707-829-8185, where we take calls after 7 a.m., when we

Headline: Crew Members

We are a 6 acre production farm that has been growing food and using organic practices for 30 years. The produce is sold throughout Mendocino County. We are seeking flexible and hard working individuals that work well independently as well as part of the team. The work can be very physical, requiring heavy lifting, cultivating, harvesting, weeding, and maintaining a positive attitude in a fast paced work environment. Other work will be less physically strenuous where focus and attention to detail are more important. You must have the ability to work in the sun. Experience in vegetable production is desired but not necessary. Good communication skills, ability to follow directions, meet high quality standards and stay on task are important.

Headline: Pastured Livestock Worker or Apprentice

Fiesta Farm is a first-generation family farm located north of Salinas near Watsonville, California. Our main focus is pasture-raised eggs and meat, primarily chicken and pork.
