Join our urban farming team in 2019 / by Carl Freeman

HI farm friends,

We are looking to employ someone in early 2019. Please help us by sharing this news and emailing this page to anyone you think might be interested.

Applications close on Friday the 18th of January.


Join our urban farming team in 2019

In 2019 we are aiming to set the foundations for a significant farm expansion during Winter 2020.

Your help on the farm will allow Farmer Carl to prioritise some time each week towards creating our big vision of growing a significant portion of Taranaki’s vegetables, following best practice sustainability and organic farming approaches.

Skills required

No experience is needed - we are mainly looking for an interest in growing and organics, physical fitness and flexibility, a strong work ethic and a good eye for detail. A drivers licence is required and own transport is ideal.

We’re also looking for someone with an interest in becoming a part of our team in the longer term and growing in responsibility as we expand our farm.

Days of work

You will need to work on Wednesdays (full day) and Saturday mornings, with occasional Fridays (with notice). The role will be around 12 - 20 hours a week initially.


If you are keen on a half day trial send us an email with your phone number and an introduction to your, your interest in this role and your fit with the required skills. or
