Interested in Exploring What It’s Like To Farm?
Get your feet wet with a part-time gig at Heronthere Farm. We grow vegetables without chemicals in Southern Prince George’s County, a short ride from DC, College Park, and Alexandria. We’re in search of 2 part-time team members for Sundays and/or Mondays starting in March up to Thanksgiving. We operate a small CSA in the Spring and Fall, so you’d have some down time from mid-July through mid-August. These are paid positions that include vegetables and, in season, swimming at ‘Heronthere Pond’. We are dedicated to the principles of organic and regenerative agriculture, diversity, inclusion, environmental stewardship, and we strive to build a lively and fun workplace.
Farm responsibilities include:
Seed, transplant and water
Prune, trellis and mulch
Harvest, wash, pack, and inventory
Mow, weed and apply netting to exclude pests
Work in our hoop houses
Looking for energetic people with a good sense of humor and a can-do attitude. Must be reasonably fit and able to lift an occasional 40 lbs. Work independently and on a team. For all of our safety, we ask that you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Please contact Claudia Raskin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
