Want to get some hands-on farm experience this season? Sign up to be a workshare and save on the cost of your CSA share!
8 Hour Option:
Join us in the field this season and save $75 on your CSA share! Simply complete 8 hours of work on the farm in Chepachet by the end of the growing season.
Workshare tasks are suited to any ability level and include a range of activities vital to the farm's functioning including weeding, prepping beds for planting, seeding and transplanting, washing and packing vegetables, various greenhouse tasks, and anything else that comes up. Being a workshare allows CSA members an in-depth look at the day-to-day operations of Hocus Pocus Farm and provides a deeper connection to the food you are receiving.
Full Season Option:
Full work share members receive a full CSA share of vegetables all season long in exchange for 1 weekly 4-hour shift for 20 weeks during the season. Available shifts are on Saturdays from 9am - 1pm, and Thursdays from 9am - 1pm.
This workshare option is almost like a mini-job. Perfect for someone who wants to spend quality time on the farm and really get to know the land, the practices, and the farmers! Because of the ongoing nature of the position, we'll send you an application so that we have a chance to meet and see if it's a good match before the season begins.
Qualifications: Please be punctual and reliable, able to take direction as well as work in a team setting, able to lift 50 lbs and navigate uneven terrain, willing to work in all weather conditions, and able to work efficiently while learning about all the daily operations of a small vegetable farm. If you cannot make it to your shift, we ask that you find a substitute.
What we can offer to you: In addition to your weekly vegetables, we can offer rides to and from the farm from Providence for Saturday morning workshares. Workshares with babies or kids are welcome and encouraged to apply!
