Hackney social enterprise Growing Communities is recruiting four volunteer Apprentice Growers for the 2014 season. The apprenticeship runs from April to the end of September and involves working for one or one and a half days a week, plus monthly evening tutorials. Apprentices will work with the growers to learn all aspects of running our organic Urban Market Gardens – including growing our award-winning Hackney salad.
We are looking for enthusiastic people who are keen to learn about growing food in a sustainable way, and who enjoy working outdoors and with other people. We particularly welcome applications from sectors of the community at risk of social exclusion.
The deadline for applications is 5pm Wednesday 19 February and interviews will be held on Friday 28 February. For details, see the website: http://www.growingcommunities.org/jobs/
