202-3002 32nd Ave, Vernon BC Canada V1T 2L7 info@certifiedorganic.bc.ca

About Our Farm

We are a 3 acre mixed vegetable, berry, and flower farm located in Qualicum Beach. We previously ran our farm in Saanich, and 2022 will be our first year growing on new land in this community. We grow a wide diversity of crops that we have chosen based on years of experience in the field, and we are certified organic (transitional) through the Islands Organic Producers Association. We employ a variety of field management techniques, and enjoy conducting research trials that improve our soil practices and produce quality. We strive to create a safe and enjoyable work environment for people from diverse backgrounds and communities, and love to share our passion for farming!

 

About the Position

We are looking for 2 people to join us on our farm for the full main season, starting mid-May until mid-September/October. Both positions are part time (3-4 days per week), 8 hrs/day. Farm crew members will be involved in all aspects of our farm, with the bulk of working hours spent seeding and planting, preparing beds, weeding, and harvesting for the weekly farmers’ market and restaurant orders. We spent many years working on farms around BC, and are happy to share our knowledge and support our staff in their future farming endeavors (we are excited that a number of our former team members are starting their own farms!).

Previous work on a farm is preferred (or in a similar outdoor, fast-paced work environment), but we also encourage applications from anyone who is keen to learn, physically fit to perform a variety of field tasks in all weather conditions, and is an engaged and dedicated worker. Only Canadian residents (or those with a valid work visa) can be considered for this position.
