    Description

    Single father and young son invite you to help with our 7 acre garden and seven greenhouses this coming season. You are welcome to work alongside other seasoned staff on our 7 acre Certified Organic vegetable farm. The intent is to create an environment where workers can work and learn about one of the fastest growing sectors in our economy. Many have enjoyed our casual and accepting atmosphere. We have a big, beautiful farmhouse and property located on the North Shore of rural Nova Scotia untouched by industry. Outdoor enthusiasts love our mountain. Group activities include but are not restricted to: swimming, sightseeing, live music parties, movies and barbecues. Your help this summer would be greatly appreciated. We hope to make it a fun and rewarding experience for everyone. We hope to hear from you soon.
    Marcus and Danney
