Staff roles provide a means for the Fruition Center to receive specific skill assistance in the activities on the farm and within the center. Staff positions are available for a minimum 3 month commitment. Staff positions require a minimum of 39 hours per week. (This averages 6.5 hours per day mon-saturday; we reserve Sunday as a day of leisure.) Work hours are based on integrity, co-collaboration, self-regulation and productivity.
Accommodations are rustic, but beautiful. The Fruition Center staff are welcome to camp or stay in the Fruition dormitory. Hot showers are available daily. Toilets are basic outdoor composting toilets. Additionally, we offer mostly dependable Wi-Fi and electricity in the center and dormitory. The communal kitchen is stocked with rice, oats, beans, and basic spices. Harvesting seasonal on farm fruits and vegetables is a weekly task we also share. Individuals or staff groups prepare their own breakfasts. Everyone is invited to enjoy a communal lunch and dinner each day. Responsibilities of meal preparation and clean up is shared amongst staff, volunteers and roots members. Although our diet is primarily whole foods vegetarian based, we do eat dairy products and occasionally fish, and are happy to cater to the dietary needs of our guests.
