Plan B Organic Farms was established in 1997 by Alvaro & Rodrigo Venturelli & Melanie Golba. We grow over 30 acres of certified organic vegetables on our 50 acre farm in Hamilton. We also manage a vineyard of organic table grapes in Niagara. We run a 500 member Multi-Farm CSA year round and deliver to Hamilton, Halton & Toronto. In the summer season we attend two outdoor Farmers’ Markets, Dundas & Dufferin Grove Park. We also operate the 2 Acre McQuesten Urban Farm in Hamilton for the City of Hamilton
Tasks for interns will include seeding, planting, weeding, watering, tractor work, harvesting, packing and delivering vegetables, and tending free- range chickens. All interns will be taking part in our farmers’ markets, and can do some work at the Urban Farm if interested. Lodging is in a wall tent with a platform floor at the home farm. Meals and utilities shared with everyone in one of the farm houses.
We’re looking for interns who enjoy living in a busy social setting and are eager to learn what running a market garden farm is all about.
Starting May 1st. 5.5 days/week with a $100 weekly stipend after taxes.
