Full-time Gardener Required at Sheepdrove Organic Farm & Eco Conference Centre

Sheepdrove is a 2,500-acre working organic farm based in Lambourn. It is home to our award-winning Eco Conference Centre, guest accommodation and woodland burial site and Education Centre. The farm produces pasture-fed organic meat for the family butcher’s shop in London and for the busy Eco-Centre which holds a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

Based at the Farm in Lambourn, we are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced gardener.

Ideally you will have a minimum NVQ Level 2 (or equivalent) in Horticulture; however this is not essential. The most necessary requirement is your passion for the principles of organic gardening.

Working under the supervision of the Head Gardener, the successful candidate will grow organic vegetables, fruit and herbs for our Conference Centre and butchers shop in London, as well as herbs for cosmetics. As part of the Gardens Team you will also develop and maintain our gardens and landscaped areas across the estate.

It’s very much a family atmosphere here at Sheepdrove. Working within a small team, you will need to be a real team player, using your own initiative and demonstrating flexibility.

A competitive remuneration package will be negotiated for the successful candidate. This is a full-time role, working 40 hours per week.
