Native Here Nursery is all about sharing information with native plant gardeners. All of our clientele, especially walk-in customers, is on a journey of knowledge. Throughout the nursery, we display one-page informational cards for every species we grow, with beautiful photos of the plant and a profile of cultural information. As plants are moved through the nursery and stock is replenished, the cards become weathered and signage needs to be updated.
Here’s what we’re looking for:
Location: Native Here Nursery and at home
Qualifications: Good-quality color printer is desirable but not necessary (plant cards can be commercially printed). We will provide a laminator and supplies (high quality printer paper, lamination jackets, etc.)
Responsibilities: Once or twice per month, check around the nursery and in the nursery notes to see what signs need replacing, then print and laminate cards (signs) and distribute them in the nursery as needed. Maintain a supply of replacement location cards and plant profile cards.
Time commitment: 3-4 hours per month, flexible. Two hours per week at the nursery and roughly equal time preparing replacement cards at home. This is an easy job that can be done solo and with flexible hours, but best to be at the nursery during hours when the production manager is available.
Whom to contact: Lesley Hunt, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our customers love the plant cards, which help them learn about the plants and select suitable materials for their gardens. We have just updated the information on all of our plant cards and plan to replace all of them in the coming year (over 300 species plus duplicates for multiple locations in the nursery).
