Looking for a summer job?

The Burning Kumquat is currently searching for 2-3 students to help with our summer farm activities. If you love working with kids, we’ve got a camp director position for you. If you just want to learn how to grow your own fruits and veggies, think about applying to be our farm manager. The details are below; let us know you’re interested by e-mailing theburningkumquat[at]gmail.com.

Farm Manager: Takes care of the farm through the summer months (weeding, watering, harvesting, taking our veggies to market, etc).

Camp Director: Helps run our summer camp for St. Louis middle school students. We have already found one interested person, but we’d like to have another student to share the responsibilities and work.

For both of these positions, we will provide housing and living costs through the summer along with a small stipend, and of course LOTS OF FREE VEGGIES!!

You also do not need any prior experience; members of our Farmigarchy will be training anyone without prior experience throughout the semester. However, you will need to be here for about 10-12 weeks during the summer (we can be flexible about dates) and to be able to devote an average of about 4-5 hours to the garden/camp every day.

If you are interested, e-mail theburningkumquat[at]gmail.com with a little information about yourself and why you’re interested in BK summer work.

I'm a math and econ student at WashU. Though I love digging in the dirt, I hope one day to combine my urban gardening and my academic background to work in food justice. But full confession? If I could afford land and livestock, I would have a pig farm in the mountains.
