We are Seb and Bethany, owners of Zocalo Organics. Our farm is a home to 2 families, a rural hub for community, a haven for wildlife and trees, a place for learning, growing, exploring, and listening to the natural world!

We are seeking 3 motivated, enthusiastic, and mature individuals to spend a full growing season with us this coming season. Our internship program runs from April 12-November 21 (we will consider adapting this for students) and will be a season packed with activity, hard-work, and lots of time learning in the best classroom ever- out on the farm! We may also accept a few shorter term volunteers at our busier times throughout the season.

What we do: We sell to 11 restaurants, one Farmers Market, and through our 80 member CSA (Community Share Agriculture) program! We specialize in organic salad greens and grow both in the field and in greenhouses. We also have some fruit crops, and chickens.
Our work activities vary - harvesting, delivering to restaurants and CSA, caring for seedlings, setting up infrastructure (irrigation, washing stations), weeding, working in the orchard, greenhouse maintenance, and more!

We offer: Delicious food, accommodations, community connections, and learning opportunities!

We cook meat occasionally and are happy to cater to vegetarians or other food needs/preferences. We eat a lot of vegetables and products from our own farm!

See our Facebook page link above for more details on us! We hope you will consider joining us!
We are a LGBTQ-friendly farm and consider applicants of any age.

To inquire please send resume and reasons for applying.
We'd love to meet you in person or via skype for an interview.
