The new year is upon us, and with that comes a fresh outlook for the approaching farming season at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga. We are looking for an experienced, self-motivated vegetable grower with market garden experience to manage our annual food and flower crop production alongside our returning Farm Coordinator.
The Salt Spring Centre of Yoga is one of the oldest yoga retreat centres in British Columbia. Aside from hosting retreats, we also operate an organic farm that provides food for our guests, residents, and members. After four decades of ecologically sound agriculture, we are breathing new life into the Centre’s historic farmland with water-harvesting earthworks and perennial crop systems. Come get your hands dirty with us and help oversee a team of enthusiastic volunteers in tending the land and producing nutrient-dense food for 25+ residents and hundreds of program guests over the course of the year.
If your idea of spirituality means working selflessly to serve the earth and your fellow humans — as well as practising asanas or meditation — then being an integral part of the Salt Spring Centre farm team at this unique little sanctuary could be the right fit for you.
