Job Vacancy: Edible Backyard

Kath Irvine's Edible Backyard NZ Growing Food Gardeners

The position is now filled – thank you!

I need an extra pair of hands for 6 hours a week.

Nothing glamourous – just the plain jane, nuts and bolts stuff like weeding, mulching, picking up pig poop, cleaning out the chookhouse, collecting sawdust from the mill, weedeating, liquid feeding, biological sprays – that kind of thing.

You need to be

  • independent – you’ll mostly be working alone,
  • reliable,
  • steady,
  • have a drivers license and be confident to drive our ute + trailer,
  • strong enough to lift a 15litre backpack sprayer + use a weedeater,
  • happy to take instruction,
  • and mostly just happy.

I have all the tools here. BYO garden gloves if required.

Thank you!
