Vacancy: Community gardener

We are looking for a gardener for our community. We hope to find someone who wants to practice and develop Biodynamic gardening and wants to live and work as a member of our Camphill community.

  • Lead the garden team and provide meaningful work for its members
  • Grow vegetables for Esk Valley Camphill community, and if possible, the local community
