Assistant Grower wanted at Dynamic Organics 4 acre market garden Cambridge

Dynamic Organics is looking for a full time assistant grower, preferably with some previous experience, to be part of the team from beginning/mid may through until the end of October.   Applicants should have a strong desire to grow excellent quality organic/biodynamic vegetables.  We are looking to increase the amount we produce and require help with all aspects of the market garden – preparing beds for planting, weeding, raising seedlings, watering, planting, setting up irrigation, picking, packing, delivering and many more things besides.

We require our workers to be sincerely interested in producing organic vegetables on a small commercial scale and be prepared to work hard to help make the market garden an organised and tidy operation that produces a good variety of excellent quality vegetables.

Dynamic Organics is a 4 acre certified biodynamic market garden just outside Cambridge.  The biodynamic motivation comes from Alex Podolinsky and the Australian Demeter Method along with the work of Vincent and Pierre Mason in France.  This year we are also following some of the ideas of Jean Martin Fortier, Curtis Stone and Conor Crickmoor at Neversink Farm.

The majority of our produce goes to a local organic box scheme and the remainder to a number of restaurants, delis and pubs around the Cambridge area.  We also hope to add one or two market stalls to our repertoire this year.

Applicants don’t need to have an interest in biodynamics but definitely need to have a strong commitment to organics.

We are looking for someone local who can drive and is able to get to and from the market garden of his or her own accord and help with deliveries.

As we are also registered WWOOF hosts there may be an opportunity for two friends or a couple to stay in the onsite caravan depending on circumstances.  The caravan is very comfortable and has a solar panel fed battery and gas.

Please feel free to have a look at the links below to see some pictures and get a little bit of an idea of what Dynamic Organics looks like:
