We’re hiring: Camel CSA is looking for a new lead grower

May 7, 2024

We’re seeking a part-time, self-employed lead grower to join our friendly and hard-working team at Camel Community Supported Agriculture in Wadebridge, Cornwall. 

Our community growing scheme at Treraven Farm has been growing vegetables agroecologically for the past 15 years. We supply weekly veg boxes throughout the year to a membership of up to 70 local households. 

The growing team produces indoor and outdoor crops to ensure constant quality and quantity all year round, while providing a weekly veg share that is varied as much as possible throughout the seasons. 

The lead grower is responsible for crop management including seed selection, sowing, propagation, transplanting, crop rotation, composting, weed control, irrigation and pest and disease management on the farm, as well as managing the growing team and supporting volunteers to produce a variety of vegetables. 

We are looking for an experienced commercial grower who understands and is committed to CSA values. There may be days where the work may be done alone, so motivation is vital for this physical job. Much of the work is outdoors in all weathers. 

Working as an effective team, good communication and responsiveness are all important. 

Please apply in writing including a cover letter and CV to secretary@camel-csa.org.uk.
