Backyard Gardens is a small market garden operation located by the beautiful Wallowa Mountains in northeastern Oregon. We supply quality produce to our rural community through farmers’ markets, CSA, direct sales, restaurants, retail stores, and our own catering business. This is a great opportunity for the right individual to share in the workings of a small, diversified vegetable, flower, and herb operation.
Dates: April /May– October 2019
We’re excited to share the experience with someone who is really interested in growing food for a small community. Crew members will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a high elevation, small market garden operation. Responsibilities include plant propagation, bed preparation, seeding, transplanting, weed management, fertility management, irrigation, harvesting and marketing.
Experience helpful, but not necessary. We are looking for someone who is motivated to work hard, possesses a good sense of humor, is flexible, reliable, responsible, has good attention to detail, and and most importantly, someone with whom we can work and play well.
