Seasonal Grower at Forty Hall Farm, Enfield. Summer 2018

Hi Folks,

Forty Hall Farm is recruiting a seasonal grower to work two days a week, helping to run our market garden. The post will be based at Forty Hall Farm in Enfield, north London for a six-month period running from the beginning of spring to autumn 2018.

We began to establish our market garden in 2013. Working on nine acres, mostly outdoors with a small amount of polytunnel space, we produce a wide range of salads and vegetables which are sold through our veg bag delivery scheme (Enfield Veg Co.), our onsite farm shop, and wholesale to local cafes and retailers.

The role
We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic person to help with day-to-day growing tasks. The position will be two days a week (either Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday), from 08.30 to 17.00 with an hour for lunch. We are looking for someone to begin in March 2018 for six months.

The main tasks of the job will be:

  • To assist with a wide range of growing tasks including seed sowing, planting out, weeding, plant care and harvest.
  • To work independently and as part of the market garden team on the above tasks.
  • To occasionally help with the packing of our weekly veg bags, as and when support is needed.
