We will not be hiring new farm crew members for the spring 2021 semester. Instead, the farm will run with a smaller crew of caretakers drawn from our existing team and continue growing food for vulnerable populations in Durham.
Student Farm Crew
Every year we look for people passionate about food and farm systems to join our Student Farm Crew! We hire up to 12 students across undergraduate and graduate levels and from many disciplinary backgrounds at Duke University at the beginning of each academic year and summer to join our crew.
Student crew positions are competitively paid positions, 8-10 hours/week, open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from all disciplinary backgrounds at Duke.
This job will include:
Working with the farm’s full-time staff and fellow student crew members to accomplish daily tasks; including planting, weeding, and harvesting sustainably-grown produce.
Washing, weighing, and packing produce for our Community Supported Agriculture program and our Duke Dining wholesale accounts.
- Learning some of the whys & hows of small-scale organic agriculture. This learning takes place both on the job and during biweekly mini-workshops.
- Facilitating community workdays and providing tours of the farm to Duke students, faculty, and staff
