Community Farm Manager

Carmarthenshire, UK

Job Type

Volunteer

About the Role

We are looking for an individual or couple who can run our community farm in Ffostrasol. Fferm Heulog is a 0,7 acre blank canvas just waiting for someone to come along and turn it into a place where volunteers can come and help grow veganic food and assist in helping build a permaculture farm and education centre. We grew an abundance of potatoes, beans, kale and leeks here last year. We can accommodate temporary van dwellers here but it must be stressed that this is for ‘seasonal workers’ and not just a cheap way to park up. Passion for the project is a must.
For skilled labourers in carpentry, building and eco-land development, there’s scope for paid work as we rebuild the barn and turn it into a classroom, workshop and food hub.

Requirements

We will require references and our Tribe seeking form completed for this role. If paid positions become available, we will also need a CV.

About the Organisation

EdenKind Ltd is a start up non-profit company dedicated to doing what we can to help change the way we live, from what we eat, where we source our food and how we treat each other in a bid to save the planet and prevent mass extinction. If you are passionate about facilitating that change and can lead by example, we want to hear from you! We are based in South West Wales but plan to go national and global over the coming months and years.

We will be creating a flagship vegan eco village here in Wales over the next 2-5 years, but our current priority is tackling some of the more urgent issues surrounding the climate crisis and our unsustainable ways of living. We are focussing on creating innovative food growing communities and non-violent activism to help precipitate change.

Investors that wish to ‘buy in’ to the eco-village will have to prove their passions far exceed any personal desire to ‘feather their own nests’ with more altruistic goals like promoting veganism and choosing kindness in all areas of their lives. The Eden Movement seeks to challenge many cultural norms, so only those who wish to improve their self-awareness and not shy away from being held accountable for their actions will find our community a rewarding one.
