Assistant Grower position for 2020

Please note applications for this position have now closed.


From early April to mid/late September 2020 we require an Assistant
Grower to work on our small organic fruit and veg farm on the Isles of Scilly. The position is
paid and comes with free accommodation.

Organics is an organic market garden growing a range of veg crops for
local sales, specialising in salad. We also grow some fruit, herbs and
flowers. Growing on approx 5 acres, most of the work is manual. The farm
doesn’t have any animals, and is vegan organic horticulture by default.

position would suit someone who has completed a trainee grower or
apprenticeship position, and now wants to step up in terms of
responsibility. As Assistant Grower you would be responsible for day to
day management including sowing, planting, weeding and harvesting. You
would work on your own at times, and together with the head grower at
other times.

This is a
chance to live and work in an exceptionally beautiful location, whilst
learning skills, techniques and an approach to step up to managing or
owning an organic growing business.

Please note this position is not suitable for those without suitable experience of commercial veg growing. It is not a trainee position, so please do not apply unless you have had some relevant experience.

For full details, terms and conditions please email Jonathan Smith

Closing date for applications is midnight November 22nd 2019.

I started Scilly Organics in 2003, and it was the first certified organic farm on the Islands. We continue to supply the highest quality fruit and vegetables, available fresh on our stall and at certain eateries on Scilly.
