Apprentice Needed for 2015 Season @ Pickering’s Greenhouse

Pickering’s Greenhouse is looking for an apprentice who is interested in learning about the vegetable production on our farm along with the landscaping/masonry and nursery/perennial production.  We are seeking this person from May through the end of the September and possibly into November.  We have about 5 acres in vegetable production and more land we work for rotational purposes.  The farm serves seven restaurants, 45 – 65 CSA members (and growing!), along with a weekend farmstand and markets.  We have potential housing for the right candidate.   Food from the farm is included along with a small weekly stipend.  The apprentice has access to learning not only from the CSA manager on the farm but her parents who both have a strong background in horticulture and the Rutland-Bennington CRAFT network.  There is access to our library and internet.  The farm borders the Battenkill river, which is used often during hot work days!

Interested?  Contact Aliza Pickering at: pickeringscsa@gmail.com.
