A message from Providence Farms’ Farm Manager Abe Wahi (@abewahi)

“We are loFarmer Abeoking at a blockbuster season for 2015. We are increasing the market garden by 50% & quadrupling the size of our cutting edge CSA, we are also building our animal husbandry program by adding cattle to graze and fertilise the fields and raising broiler chickens.
I’ve been managing farm operations for 5 seasons, and during that time I have trained 18 interns. At Providence Farm we are offering you an exciting opportunity, not only do you get the standard opportunity to really push your body to the limits gaining the muscle memory necessary to become a successful field worker but more importantly2015 Jocelyn you get to work with an experienced educator teaching you the tips and tricks to help you become a successful farmer. Also working approximately 40 hours a week you will get ample time to appreciate a day of satisfying hard work, and still have lots of time to rest and relax and enjoy all that the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver Island have to offer.2015 Market
Of course you are coming here to farm, but Providence Farm will be a wonderful place to call home during your months here, no matter where you look you will see big smiles, hearty waves and a wonderful sense of community. I look forward to receiving your application, meeting you and if we’re a good fit – working with you on what is looking like an amazing summer of farming.”
