New Working-Member Opportunities in 2018

Posted 12/20/2017 9:11am by Stephanie Bartel.

Green bean picking, a popular Saturday morning pastime at Old Plank Farm. Now you can join in the fun in 2018!

This season we want to get more members involved in the weekly harvest work at Old Plank Farm. If you want to become a farm member but don't want to pay for a seasonal share, consider working a few hours a week at the farm in exchange for your membership.

We have two blocks of time available in 2018: Saturday mornings 8:30-11:30 and Monday afternoons 1:30-4:30. Small share members work the first two hours of each shift for their weekly box, and large share members work the full three hours for their weekly box. You only work during the weeks we deliver boxes (typically mid-June through early November).
 
Saturday morning workers will be out in the field and must be able to do harvest work, which includes lots of bending over and/or lifting of 40 lb crates. It also includes being exposed to the stresses of weather (hot or wet or sometimes near freezing temperatures in the last few weeks of delivery). Harvesting vegetables is fast-paced, rewarding and usually we have a lot of fun! 
 
Monday afternoon workers will be in the packing shed helping to wash, sort or bag produce. This job may entail having your hands in cold wash water and occasionally moving produce crates that can weigh up to 40 lbs. Otherwise it is not very strenuous, and is open to people who can't easily work out in the fields. 
 
If you want to join our working-member crew, send us an email (csa@oldplankfarm.com) and include the following info:
 
Name:
Small or Large Share:
Pick-up Site:
Work shift desired (Saturday morning or Monday afternoon):
Describe previous outdoor work experience, if any (if you want to work Saturday morning):
 
 
Working on the farm is a great way to connect more closely with your food, and your farmers too! We hope new and returning members will consider joining us as working-members this season.
