Work try-out, Turntable, Feb-May, May-Aug, Sept-Dec 2024 (4 months, 20h/week)

Dodo is looking for two people from Helsinki for a four-month work trial at the urban agriculture center Turntable in Pasila. In the February-May period, seedling cultivation will begin, spring events will be organized and a sauna will be built. In the May-August period, the seedlings are moved out to the greenhouse and seeds are sown outside, and spring and summer events are organized. In the September-December period, crops are tended, harvest is collected and autumn events are organized.

The applicant is expected to be handy, interested in Dodo’s activities and willing to learn about urban farming. Studies and work in event production, construction and landscaping are considered an advantage. You are interested in plants, and environmental issues are close to your heart. You are not afraid of small repair tasks, administrative tasks or working with new people or ideas. The working languages are Finnish and/or English. Self-initiative and responsibility a plus.

Before you apply please check from your local TE services that you are allowed to have a supported salary or work try-out. More information about work try-out on the Job Market webpage.

Work tasks:

  • Urban gardening and repairing the garden structures (gardening, landscaping or equivalent training will be considered an advantage as well as building)
  • Coordinating the Turntable community garden, working with volunteers
  • Participating in the Turntable event planning and organizing
