BROOKWOOD COMMUNITY FARM
Field Crew 2017
Brookwood Community Farm is hiring 2 individuals for field crew this season!
We seek individuals who are mature, enthusiastic, in good physical condition and able to do fast-paced, detail-oriented work. Some manual labor or farm experience preferred but not necessary. Applicants should be able to lift 50 pounds, sustain focus & pace through repetitive tasks, work outside in all weather conditions, and enjoy getting dirty. Ideal candidates work well as part of a team, are quick learners, and take direction well. You also need a reliable form of transportation to the farm as we are not accessible by public transit.
The Field Crew will work in the fields at all 3 sites that we grow on, focusing primarily on weeding and harvesting, but will also be involved in planting and other farming tasks as needed. Crew members will learn practical skills including how to use farm tools and how to harvest and handle produce. The field crew will work together as a group and alongside the full-season farm crew and will be supervised by the assistant grower. Field Crew members will work Tuesday-Friday 7am-12:30pm. The job runs June-August, but exact dates can vary on a case by case basis. We prefer people than can do 4 days, but a modified schedule of Tuesday, Thursday and Friday can be accommodated.
