  • Food Guide:  Sharpen your marketing skills by helping us sell ads for the ASD/Appalachian Farmers Market Association annual food guide.  These ads help pay for the printing of the guide and are really important for its longevity.
  • Gardening:  Have you always wanted a career that keeps you fit, outdoors, and healthy?  Volunteer with our Learning Landscapes or Grow Your Own programs and you could just find yourself a new career.
  • Food Tastings:  Do you have a passion for healthy food and like working with kids?  ASD needs folks to help prepare food for school and event tastings.  You’ll get to work with the kids to tell them where their food comes from and provide them with opportunities to taste new things!

Well I have about got one season completed in Bath County and am ready to hire another full time person. Maybe you know of someone or can advertise this for me through your contacts. Here are some of the things I’m looking for:
  • familiar with organic veggie production
  • greenhouse/hoop house production
  • hay production
  • cattle and/or other livestock
  • tractor and other farm equipment operation
  • seed saving practices
  • bees and honey production
  • mechanical trouble shooting
  • able to work independently
  • some supervision
  • good worker and able to meet goals
  • able to work with public and represent farm
  • willing to relocate to Bath county
I know this is a tall order in one person and don’t expect someone to meet all of them, but I can work with that.   If you do know someone that might be interested then let them know. I need good help. This would be a great opportunity for the right person. Good workers here are hard to find. If you have any questions feel free to call. Since I don’t sleep much late at night (after 9) is best.
Thanks mark
