Kolapore Gardens

*Internship Positions Filled for 2017

Kolapore Gardens is a biologically intensive market garden producing top quality, nutrient dense vegetables and herbs for the local communities of Collingwood, Thornbury, Clarksburg and the Beaver Valley.

We are located next to a provincial park and plenty of wild forests and creeks.

Our farm works cooperatively with a neighbouring horse farm who provide manure in exchange for helping out with hay & upkeep of the farm.

We accept 2 apprentices each year and share our skills of:
– Designing crop rotations and garden layouts
– Business Planning
– Building healthy soils & growing nutritious crops
– Greenhouse management for seedling production, summer and winter crops
– A variety of weed control techniques
– Efficient harvesting techniques
– Marketing through a Summer CSA, 2 local farmers markets and a Winter CSA
– Raising laying hens

Apprentices live on farm, food prep is shared and apprentices earn a modest stipend. A valid drivers licence is not required, but would be an asset.

We look forward to hearing from applicants who are seriously considering starting their own farm business in the next few years and want to refine their skills as well as those who are more generally interested in learning about market gardening and aren’t afraid to get dirty and work hard.
