Title: Market farmer for the Lerab Ling vegetable garden
Entity: Freelance farmer 
Status: To be discussed 
Location: Lerab Ling
Line responsibility to: Yourself
Start date: As soon as possible
Duration: To be discussed

For its vegetable garden, Lerab Ling is looking for a 'market farmer' (jardinier-maraîcher) with some experience in the ‘Fortier method’ or something similar. You will be a freelance farmer registered in France and will be leasing a land of about 2000 m2 (potentially more) from us with part of the produce as payment (maximum of 1/3).

The land is at an altitude of 750 meters, so it would be considered as mountain farming. You alone are responsible and you will mainly be working by yourself, although sometimes some community members might be able to help. The advantages are that the land has been worked and the soil has been improved for many years.

Lerab Ling will provide you with the land, a large greenhouse and all tools including rototiller, however lodging will not be provided. You could live in one of the nearby villages. Yet the main advantage is perhaps that Lerab Ling could guarantee to take all your produce at organic wholesale prices (you are free to sell your produce to anyone) if your production fits the kitchen needs. As you know it is hard work, yet you will be working in a beautiful environment in the mountains at one of the biggest Buddhist monasteries in Europe, providing the community of practitioners with fresh and organic produce.
