Native Here is filled with an abundance of nutrients, water, and energy. Most of that energy is manifested by the plants we grow, but some rubs off on the weeds. The extra water naturally encourages weeds, but we need to keep them at bay to avoid spreading weed seeds along with our plants. Weeding is one of many meditative tasks at the nursery, with flexible hours and many different opportunities. In fact, it’s pretty educational to get to know the weeds from the non-weeds. We will teach you all you need to know!
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. Comfortable using a trowel, hand weeder, or shovel at times.
Responsibilities: All work is at the nursery. The production manager will advise you about areas and species most in need of attention and how to tell the weeds from the natives.
Time commitment: 3-4 hours per month, flexible. Best to start out during regular nursery hours, Tuesdays 12-3, Fridays 9-12, Saturdays 10-2, but once trained you can work at other hours.
