Farmer or Co-farmers needed:
Common Ground Farm is a community supported agriculture project entering its eighth year in Southern Dutchess County NY. Located on the grounds of Stonykill Environmental Center, the farm is in the heart of the beautiful Hudson Valley, near Beacon, NY. Our organization farms for over 200 families through our CSA share program as well as two local farmers markets. We are a charitable and educational organization working to connect the community to the farm and improve access to healthy food for all. Our farmer will have the support of shareholder volunteers, an executive director who runs the organization as well as interns. While not certified organic, we are chemical free and sustainable and signers to the NOFA Farmer's Pledge. We are looking for a farmer or farmers for the 2009 growing season who are experienced with organic methods, growing diverse vegetable crops (we grow over 70 types and many more varieties) as well as some mechanical ability. Housing and healthcare included. Please contact Lisa Jessup at 845-831-6070 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application and for more information on the farm, check out the website at www.commongroundfarm.org.
