Job Description: 

Round the Bend Farm, a Center for Restorative Community, is a 94-acre fully diversified working small farm and educational non-profit acting as “a living laboratory that cultivates, educates, and empowers people of all ages." We are devoted to the global paradigm shift toward hope and abundance through our mission of valuing diversity, modeling nature, and redefining wealth. We use a synthetic-free philosophy that incorporates elements of permaculture, biodynamics and soil remineralization practices to raise a number of crops to support our internal organization, sustainable on-farm living community and educational projects, in addition to sourcing ecologically conscious events in our space and a small amount of excess direct customer sales.

We produce in an integrated system that yields annual vegetables, perennial crops, berries, tree fruit, medicinal herbs and livestock and meat.

We are looking specifically for someone to be involved with all aspects of growing agricultural produce at the farm -- primarily annual vegetables, perennial crops and medicinal herbs. Duties may include: seed sowing, nursery care, soil preparation, transplanting, weeding and cultivation, perennial care, greenhouse crops, harvesting, seed saving, propagation, food storage and food processing.
