permaculture/gardening apprentice:

Gardening here is totally, organic, involving much soil preparation,
mound building, planting, feeding, weeding, mulching & harvesting of
plants.  It worked great for us to have more than one apprentice sharing
the work.  The main garden is well over an acre, another half acre
garden on our Beaver House property & we also have 2 forest gardens in
their beginning years which still need to have much planted up.  Garden
people should know the difference between, say, basil & coriander, & how
to use a shovel.  At least.  As for overall oversight, design & planning
of the garden, & tasks such as tree planting, grafting, propagation,
seed saving, catchment & pond construction, setting up a permaculture
resource library & reading area, desing & creation of the "town square"
lot. There are also dairy goats, chickens & ducks which require daily
attention.   Ideally apprentices have taken some version of a
permaculture design course, but it is not required.  Should be able to
begin by April & stay thru Oct harvest, canning & food preserving.  Food
& Lodging is $100/month for 20-30 hours a week help, & if capable of
doing more the price can be negotiated.
