A shout out for Jay…
Jay Hilder of Blooming Great!, a Permaculture market garden project on the Sunshine Coast, is putting a shout out for work to help him realise his dream.
Can you help?
We are happy to put a shout out for Jay Hilder who is quite an inspiration in that he has transformed his life from a city-slicker IT high flyer to an earthy permaculture organic grower, focused on food security and conscious development. Nothing wrong with earning heaps of dollars in the city if that’s your calling but for Jay he felt he wanted to be more connected to creating a sustainable and locally resilient future for himself and his community. Making the transition has not been easy but Jay has stuck with it and is finding his way which is just what the Transition movement is all about.
Jay is on the path to setting up a market garden but needs some interim work now to help him on his way. You may know someone who can help.
Here is a personal message from the man himself…
For Jay’s resume see: resume for Jay Hilder >
I am writing to ask for your help in finding suitable part time work on the Sunshine coast.
I have found my dream and passion and started a permaculture farm share with two others. Our intention is to grow market garden greens, sprouts, mushrooms and free range eggs to sell locally. We have the land, the water, the time, expertise and a bounty of customers already. Our growing schedule shows us that we will make an income that can sustain us from September onwards. It is really very exciting. You can see us at FaceBook.com/BloominGreat
However, in the meantime the bills still need to be paid.
So, I am keen to offer my services to an organisation on an ongoing basis to help them achieve their goals and mine.
What I offer is skills and experience in:
- farming, plant nurseries, construction and landscaping
- managing people and projects
- business, government and community organisations
- group facilitation
My resume is attached to give you more info.
I am open to roles:
- preferably in agriculture, land management, resources, forestry industries
- in other industries too
- part time permanent, casual for 3-5 days per week
- flexible hours throughout the week and weekends
- working for an organisation that has good team environment
- that are a challenge
- within 40 minutes of Obi Obi valley (behind Mapleton)
If the organisation you work for is looking for someone dynamic, reliable, who can learn quickly and work as part of a team then please let me know. I can start within the week.
