APPRENTICES NEEDED at Quail Hill Community Farm, a 150 member, pick-your-own,
CSA program which grows mixed vegetables, extensive cover crops, raspberries,
apple and young peach orchards on 25 certified organic acres, and maintains a
small flock of laying hens.  The farm also generates income by managing
another 80 acres.  This involves seeding fields, field mowing, garden design
and maintenance, and composting.

Apprentice tasks include: planting, cultivation, greenhouse upkeep,
harvesting, care of tools and tractors, and supervision of the farm members,
who pick the bulk of their own shares.

Work week is 5 1/2 days, which includes Saturday member harvest day.  Off
farm housing only is avialable.  Stipend is $250 per week, which includes a
housing allowance.

Quail Hill farm is a project of the Peconic Land Trust, a nonprofit
conservation organization which has protected over 2000 acres of land on
Eastern Long Island.  The farm is located on a 192 acre preserve in
Amagansett, NY, minutes from dunes and ocean beaches.
