Quiet Creek Herb Farm & School of Country Living
This is the Deal
Live and work with our young family and eat organic vegetables all year long! Learn all aspects of country living and organic herb and vegetable growing from plant propagation to harvest. Challenging and rewarding work as well as tedious and sometimes repetitive.
40 + hours per week for room and board and sustainable living mentoring. Please consider interning with us in a smoke, alcohol and television free environment. Please contact us at my email and send us your resume, set up a site visit to come stay, work and dine with us for a few days, and send us two references (personal and professional).
We are a non-profit, charitable, educational organization dedicated to increasing the public awareness of conservation, ecological thinking and healthful sustainable living.
Come visit our farm and wander through our beautiful, lush gardens of organic herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers. Discover this warm, friendly place and attend a class, browse through our gift shop full of fresh and dried herbs, herbal teas, vinegars, essential oils, wreaths, soaps, herbal salves, tinctures, mushroom logs, books, bird houses-all made here at Quiet Creek. New items are added regularly.
We share our community-building philosophy with you because we sincerely believe in the importance of living sustainable lives. If you enjoy natural living, you will love all that Quiet Creek has to offer.
Stowe and Marina Comments-2010
We, Stowe and Marina, have truly arrived. This place is beyond description...I don't even know where to begin. Our new home is a strawbale structure with stone floors, radiant heating, a composting toilet, running water, an abundance of artwork, a tree in the center of it, electricity, wi-fi, the works! Our meals are provided for us (or we cook for others using the vegetables they grew last year) and dinner our first night was beans+rice, potato+mushroom soup, homemade (by Claire) sprouted bread with homemade herb-infused butter out of a mason jar, tortillas with onions and fresh cheese, raw milk and kimchi still bubbling from fermentation. Marina can hardly even speak and has been pie-eyed for about 2 hours- I'll say it again- We have arrived!
