This is cool...
Artisan, holistic, chemical free berry farm in Sebastopol seeks people to prune boysenberries.
Kokopelli Farm just finished its 24th annual boysenberry harvest. We are currently pruning the vines and need more people to help us on this small farm. No experience needed. We will train you. The training does not pay, but once one is trained, they are eligible to be paid to pick blackberries, whose harvest will begin soon.
We are located in an attractive wild land and camping out is available on a work change basis. Some fresh food is available for free to trainees, including salad greens, plums, and apples. This is part-time work. Our goal is to train more people to "think like a berry."
Benefits also include being able to take bare-root berry plants to other farms and gardens. People trained to prune go to the top of the list to be hired to pick boysenberries next year, with the harvest usually starting around June 10. Our need for pruners is immediate.
Please contact Shepherd directly at (707) 829-8185, after 7 a.m. or at 3sb@comcast net, rather than through this wonderful website.
