Work with us

There are lots of opportunities to get involved with Saanich Organics. Our work is never done and we appreciate all the hands we can get.

Volunteering

If you would like to eat more of our organic produce, but have more time than money, we encourage you to come out and do a trade for food. We accept a range of volunteer commitments, but it works best if volunteers can commit to coming out on a regular basis because we can be prepared to have something interesting for you to do.

If you don’t know how much time you will have to volunteer, you can also join our work party call out list. Throughout the season, when things get out of hand or when we are starting big projects, we call upon friends and allies to come out to the farm for the morning or afternoon.

Apprenticeships

Some of the farmers with Saanich Organics take one or more apprentices each year. Apprenticeships can take many forms: from living on the farm, to coming out several times a week. Apprenticing is a more formal arrangement between the farmer and a person who expresses a strong interest in farming as a career. We usually recruit apprentices through SOIL.org but if you are interested, please get in touch.

Employment

Every year we do some hiring of paid staff for our farms and for the marketing side of Saanich Organics. We have a greenhouse manager, field hands, administration, farmers’ market attendants and box packing jobs. If you are interested in a paid position with Saanich Organics, please submit your CV by email.

Please email us at info@saanichorganics.com to let us know if you are interested in any of these opportunities.

At present (Oct 2016) all field hand positions are filled for the season.  Check back periodically for openings, or get in touch in January regarding next season.
