We are looking for full-time and part-time crew members beginning in March/April and going to November/December, with potential for part-time winter employment depending on interest.
We are looking for hardworking, self-directed individuals with a strong work ethic and excellent attention to detail. Crew members are involved in many aspects of the farm including: harvesting, bed preparation, seeding, transplanting, cultivation, and farmers markets.
Applicants should be in good physical shape as the majority of work is done by hand, and be able to lift 50 lbs regularly. Applicants should be able to work well with others but also independently. Previous experience is a plus.
Work days are 8 hours/day, with full-time at 5 days/week, and part-time at 2-3 days/week.
No housing is provided. Must have reliable transportation to and from the farm.
Compensation: Hourly pay (starting at $13.50/hr or higher, depending on experience) + veggies, with paid time off accruing after 3 months employment.

About Roots Farm:
We are a certified organic, diversified vegetable farm in Tiverton, RI. We grow year-round on a small acreage using no-till, intensive and compact farming methods. We practice regenerative farming, and building healthy soil is our focus.
We use six unheated, moveable high tunnels for year-round growing, producing fresh veggies that are sold primarily through our summer and winter farmshare (CSA) programs and three farmers markets. We strive to produce the most nutrient dense crops for the health of the soil, vegetables, and customers.
