Learn To Work Program

LEARN TO WORK PROGRAM:

There's a lot to do on the farm during the growing season. This year we're debuting a new program to Woodside Farms, our Learn To Work program. If you've ever thought about joining us to get the work done but have limited farm work experience, this program could be for you. This program allows you to set your schedule and work as many or as few hours a week as you would like. First, you'll need to complete our 40-hour Basic Farm Skills Training Program (while getting paid $25 in farm stand credit per 4-hour shift). In order to start getting paid, simply fill out our Learn To Work Contract and start completing the 10-stage skill-building checklist (listed below). You can complete this 40-hour program as quickly or slowly as you would like.

This program is completely optional and is designed to provide the farm as well as the participants the chance to assess what it would be like to work for the farm before making the commitment.

Complete 40 hours of training (at least 4 hours from all 10 stages listed below) to transition from gaining Farm Stand credit to earning $10-$15/hour with the flexibility to make your own work schedule. 

10 Stages: 

1. Weeding/Cleaning/Watering

2. Processing/Washing/Bagging

3. Harvest Easy Crops
4. Bed Flipping

5. System Set Up (drip tape, Remay, shade installation)

6. Harvest Hard Crops
7. Bed Prep and Direct Sow
8. Transplanting & Early Plant Care

9. Pruning, Feeding, Late Plant Care

10. Sales, Store Front, Order Packing
