Organic Food Farm Volunteer Program

Wednesday 19 June 2013

Calling all green thumbs, Crystal Castle devotees and lovers of the outdoors!

Crystal Castle wants you!

As an endeavour to lower our carbon footprint and expand on our castle grown organic café produce, we will soon start construction on our very own Organic Food Farm, here on the Crystal Castle grounds. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in gardening and organic farming to assist us in this wonderful project!

We hope to find approximately 4-8 people to assist us 1-2 days a week (6 hour days) for a period of approximately 4-8 weeks, depending on how many volunteers are on the team. We are also offering the opportunity for volunteers to assist us in maintaining the gardens once they’re constructed.

Although no experience is required, we are hoping some of our volunteers may have experience and skills in construction and landscaping.

Our gardens team have a wealth of knowledge to share with you and these are some of the skills you may learn:

  • Organic & permaculture principles
  • Garden bed construction
  • Soil amelioration
  • Composting
  • Propagation

 

 

  • Planting
  • Mulching
  • Pruning
  • Plant Thinning
  • Harvesting

 

 

You will be warmly welcomed into our tribe by our unique and amazing team of people, and each day you will be given tea/coffee, cake and lunch “on the castle”.

Estimated start early July, but will depend on the response.
