KITCHEN GARDENER at Sculpture by the Lakes, Dorset

Very sadly our Kitchen Gardener is leaving us for pastures new so we are searching for a new vegetable growing guru!

The Kitchen Garden was created in order to supply the Sculpture by the Lakes Café with fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs.  It is run on the `No Dig’ system and we would expect the successful applicant to carry this on, so experience with this type of management would be useful.  We are looking for someone who can develop the garden and implement the necessary sowing and associated planting.  They will work alongside our chef in planning seasonal crops so that the Café has a constant supply throughout the year wherever possible.

The Kitchen Garden team consists of this full-time position, plus a part-time assistant who also helps cover weekend picking and watering duties, and a volunteer who works one day a week.  As well as being responsible for the Kitchen Garden, the successful applicant will also be expected to help with other garden or estate work during particularly busy periods.

Sculpture by the Lakes has been described as one of the UK’s most beautiful and unique sculpture parks.  Situated close to Dorchester, the park is set in 26 acres alongside the River Frome, with streams, ponds, three lakes, woodland walks and meandering paths through some of Dorset’s prettiest landscape.   www.sculpturebythelakes.co.uk

Starting salary £25,000 per annum depending on experience.  Full time, hours 9am to 4pm October to end March, 8am to 5pm April to end September. Live out.
