Field Assistant at Sharing Farm in Richmond, BC
On my time at The Sharing Farm, I have been learning the different procedures needed to maintain and grow healthy organic crops. My job as the field assistant is to work with other field assistants or be of help to others and work on various types of tasks around the farm. These tasks can include weeding the soil to maintain crop protection, harvesting when crops when ready, and many more. By learning how to maintain crops, it closely conincides with how trees may need planning and maintenance in forest stands to ensure that the desired growth results of the tree is met whether that be for harvesting or to just replenish the stand. I recommend considering Co-op as it is a wonderful time to learn many new things and gain the important experience needed at different occupations. The people that you meet are wonderful on Co-op terms as my time at The Sharing Farm with everyone has been nothing but great.
