Bore Place Organic Market Garden

The market garden at Bore Place is 6 ½ acres (all outdoors) supplying box schemes around Brighton and London as well as some wholefood shops. We grow a wide range of vegetables and do most of the propagating ourselves. During the season you will see and experience sowing, planting crop maintenance and harvesting.

The market garden is a medium scale veg growing business. If you want to learn about producing for wholesale on a reasonable scale and learn about the ins and outs of it, I am keen to share whatever I know and see it as a practical training opportunity as well. I can accommodate 1 person during the season and the work is paid. Either send an e-mail to me for more information: xmetske@hotmail.com  and tell something about yourself and the experience you.

The search for new seasonal workers starts every year around December/January so if your looking for something around that time please get in touch. We will be recruiting again at the end of 2021.
