The Ignatius Farm is an integral part of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph Ontario, whose key mission for more than four decades has been to foster an ecological way of life through agriculture, spirituality, and eco-restoration.
The Ignatius Farm grows certified organic vegetables and berries for Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) members, farmers markets, local businesses and service agencies. The Farm’s programs include community gardens, acreage rentals, internships, working shares, volunteer opportunities, and several annual community events.

Candidates should have some background, knowledge or interest in gardening, greenhouse production, soils, ecology, local food systems, use of basic tools, and the mindset to integrate ecological restoration and eco-spirituality with ecological farming.
Ignatius Farm staff commit to Health & Safety mindfulness, working outside in all weather, operating as a cohesive team, open communications, and building community.
