WORK-EXCHANGE / VOLUNTEER

Position: Farm Intern
Type: volunteer position with accom., meals, more (see below)
Organization: Mossy Banks
Location: near Duncan, Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Want some hands-on experience at organic/permaculture farming? We are looking for an individual or preferably a couple interested in working on a mixed, organic, Permaculture-based farm starting as soon as possible for at least one month, preferably until the end of the summer (October).

Must be interested in working with animals, vegetable gardens and food forests — a holistic approach to orcharding. Will consider short-term workers with previous farming experience. Must have a positive attitude and be willing to work hard but also ready to learn how much fun farming can be. Must be a team player yet able to work independently. Extensive library of farming, organic gardening and Permaculture books available to workers.

Accommodations include your own trailer, shared bathroom and shared kitchen with many communal meals. 35 hours a week required. Seeding, planting, garden prep and maintenance as well as harvesting a large part of the workload but looking after animals and poultry we are raising for meat or eggs also part of the work. One to two days off a week to be negotiated to meet everyone’s needs. Farm is 10 minute drive from Duncan, an agricultural town in the heart of Vancouver Island, with hiking areas nearby. Absolutely NO PETS allowed.

Please reply only if seriously interested. Call Lynn at 250 597 3513 or e-mail:
