Working at Organic Herb Trading

This role will support the Herb Field Manager, Sarah Weston. Sarah is committed to organic growing, has a great work ethic and is keen to share her knowledge and expertise. You will be working in a team with Sarah and WWOOFers.
The successful candidate must have:
- Previous growing experience
- Good plant knowledge
- The ability to work well in a team
- A passion for organic growing and herbs
- A positive can-do attitude
