    This summer we will be harvesting and processing cherries, taking care of the newly planted fruit and nut trees, work on our agri-tourism campground and have a booth at the Saturday Market!
    I would love to have somebody longer term who can help with the market stand and preparations.
    If you are outgoing, love talking to people, and self-motivated, this could be a great summer gig for you!

    Trade is 25 hours/week for accommodation with meals, or 15 hours/week for accommodation only.
    Most of the tasks are quite physical, so please be prepared to use your muscles!
    No dogs please.
