Via Tilth Producers of Washington:

Jubilee Farm is accepting applications for a full-time person to establish an on-farm, seed-saving program. 

Jubilee Farm is located on the Snoqualmie River in Carnation, WA.  The farm was first certified organic in 1995.  After many years of organic farming, we have now for several years been transitioning into biodynamic farming.   Biodynamic farmers generally believe that sustainability in its strongest sense means that a farm should subsist without off-farm inputs.   We've worked for years at developing on-farm fertility; this spring we are ready for the next stage in our farm's attempt to become sustainable: on-farm seed-saving.   

We are looking for a person who is experienced in all phases of seed saving to join us as a full-time staff person.  This person's primary responsibility will be to organize and manage a first-year seed-saving plan, and will work closely with the farm manager in utilizing the resources of the farm to make that plan successful.   

An hourly wage for this position will be based on degree of experience; on-farm housing is possible.  We work eight hour days, Monday through Friday.  This position will start on March 1, 2011, and could provide year-around employment.

Applicants should send a resume and cover-letter to
