We are now accepting applications for our 2023 trail crew and farm crew members.

Trail Crew members build and maintain trails in Berkshire County and beyond. They build stone staircases and bog bridges; they remove invasive species; they crib trails to keep the trail intact.

Farm Crew members participate in all aspects of running April Hill Farm. They care for the bees, chickens, and sheep; they prepare garden beds for planting; they manage the greenhouse; they grow and harvest thousands of pounds of food for donation to food pantries and for the staff CSA.

Our crew members earn good money, learn new skills, and feel proud of the work they have done for the community. They also have a great time! Click on the links above for more information and to apply.

Farm Crew Coordinator – year-round, full time position. Must be at least 21 years old and prepared to live on site at April Hill – the Farm Crew Coordinator is part of the core farm team at April Hill Conservation and Education Center, working closely with the Farm Director and a second Farm Crew Coordinator. Together we manage approximately 1 acre of primarily annual vegetables, herbs, and flowers with smaller amounts of perennial crops like asparagus, raspberries, strawberries, and pollinators. Our food is distributed through organizations in Berkshire County working to relieve food insecurity, through a staff produce share, and a local farmer’s market. April Hill has two Farm Crew Coordinator (FCC) positions. Both help focus on managing vegetable production and leading our summer youth farm crew. Our on-site FCC also focuses on our laying hens and greenhouse management. Full description and application instructions are here.
