Join the Mangaroa Farms team in the exciting new fixed term role of Market Garden Intern. This is an exciting opportunity for someone new to the market garden industry, or you may already have practical regenerative garden experience. We believe in regenerative agriculture and we are looking for an Intern to join our team on this journey.
The Market Garden Intern will work across two key aspects of our Market Garden:
- working in the Market Garden providing hands on garden work.
- working in the Mangaroa Farm shop/Kete Kai providing front line retail support.
As our Market Garden and Farm shop/Kete Kai grow, we currently need to remain flexible around busy periods and seasonal growing periods centered around demand and capacity.
It’s an exciting opportunity to join our team as we move towards the spring/summer planting season, as well as delivering on and expanding our new retail offering.
About Mangaroa Farms
Nestled alongside the mighty Mangaroa River in the Hutt Valley water catchment, Mangaroa Farms is a resilient community food hub and education centre with 2000-acres of living laboratory for transitioning dairy & pine into regenerative agriculture and native forests.
Not only are we based in one of the most beautiful spots, but we are an exciting and growing small team and we are doing things a bit differently. Our dedicated team offer bespoke and integrated experiences to everyone who joins us on the farm, connecting them to the purpose, place and people of Mangaroa Farms.
We seek to offer a living system paradigm demonstrated through a community of life. We strive to relocalise, re-engage, and re-emphasise ecological education through an integrated storytelling experience for our customers and the community.
This is an exciting time to be a part of a story that connects to our purpose, place and people.
