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!
