2016 Worker Share Program
How can you afford not to eat healthy!
Introduction- GardenCrate Company, was established in 2015 as a CSA, and is a collaboration of small family farms and currently in the process of developing a local Food Hub serving Central Wisconsin. Eating and buying local is better for our environment and our economy. We are proud and excited to be a part of the new food movement that is sweeping through the US which is recognized and supported by the US Department of Agriculture.
Worker Shared- Developing a business takes many man hours, resources and expertise. We are offering this opportunity for you to become part of the food movement and our offering worker share memberships to help make it possible to move local rural food into the urban community. By committing to a worker share, you are utilizing and sharing your expertise and in return you receive your food share free. There are many facets of the business, including inside and outside work, stay at home or at the office jobs that you may participate in. Some areas include, Marketing, Sales, Advertising, Promotions, Weeding, Packaging, Truck Driving, Harvesting, Cleaning, Barn Chores, Book Keeping, and much more!
Commitment- In General, 4 hours a week is required for a “free” Sprout food. The duration can be up to 20 weeks. You will receive a Sprout Crate of raw, nutritious seasonal fruits and veggies valued at $699 in return for 80 hours of work. More hours may be arranged for extra food shares. Volunteers usually go home that day with produce from the farm
• Field / Farm workers usually work the same 4-hour shift each week. They are committed to work up to 18 weeks, from June through Oct, in the morning on Weds or Thurs or on days agreed in advance.
• Inside Workers Positions usually work by pre-arrangement which works out best for you and the business. Hours and time usually varies depending on what position and task you have and is fairly negotiated between both parties.
• Worker share members are committed, willing, and excited to be part of the food movement. You should have the ability to get along with others and can work well under the direction of the owners.
• Outside Field Farm Workers should dress appropriately for the conditions, be physically in shape and enjoy the outdoors, fresh air and love nature. Hats, sunscreen and gloves are a plus. Work requires kneeling, lifting, carrying and walking. Allowances will be made in case of severe weather.
