Native Here’s philosophy is to grow plants as naturally as possible. Our plants get extra special care when they are tiny seedlings, protection from the elements when transplanted to larger containers, and then as much sun or shade as their species requires later on. All of this means our plants are moved several times at Native Here. Plant wranglers make this happen, and they ensure the happiest, fastest-growing, healthiest plants. Looking for some good exercise for a good cause? Plant wrangler could be the job for you!
Here’s what we’re looking for:
Location: Native Here Nursery
Qualifications: Ability to work outdoors, on your feet, at the nursery, several hours per month. Need to be able to move mostly gallon-size plant containers on and off plant tables and cages, and pull carts of plants on uneven ground.
Responsibilities: All work is at the nursery. The production manager will advise you about where plants should be moved and how to record the moves on inventory sheets.
Time commitment: 6-8 hours per month, Fridays 9-12 and Saturdays 10-2 (two shifts/month desirable).
Whom to contact: Beth Wurzburg, firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of our highly experienced potters just can’t perform this heavier job, so this specialty is a much-appreciated task. Most potting is completed on Tuesdays and Fridays, so there is a big need for plant wranglers to keep plants heading toward their next destination.
