now hiring: Farm crew coordinator
Early March Start Date. $21/hr. On-site housing available.
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 broader Greenagers staff. Together we manage approximately 1 acre of annual vegetables, herbs, and flowers with smaller amounts of perennial crops like asparagus, raspberries, strawberries, and a pollinator garden.
We primarily work on a hand-scale, using tractors for larger projects around the property. Our food is distributed through organizations in Berkshire County working to relieve food insecurity and through a staff produce share. When the farm season ends, we transition into our autumn/winter work, managing a community firewood bank and a spring community garden bed installation program.
Working on the farm requires working within a collaborative group setting. Some prior farm crew
experience is preferred, but this is a great opportunity to gain management skills. A willingness to learn/try new things, a sense of humor and the patience to collaborate with nature is helpful.
