Good organization, time management and communication skills are a must. Seed to seed and weed management experience is crucial.  The farmer will also utilize and oversee volunteer help such as interns and woofers.  A willingness and ability to interact with guests to occasionally offer educational / learning experiences as they occur is a plus!
