we are hiring
want to work with us?
read below to see if you would be a good fit!
You love plants and people. You don't have to know anything about plants- we'll teach you! But you have to already love helping people.
You're not afraid of hard work. The job is physically demanding and we work in all weather conditions. Being on your feet and carrying heavy plants/trees/bags of mulch is much more difficult than it sounds.
You have flexible availability and are available on the weekends. Our store is open from 9am to 6pm most of the year. Our busiest day of the week is Saturday, closely followed by Sunday. That is when we need help.
You know how to use an iPad and are a quick learner. There is a lot of information to take in (and quickly).
You are not worried about getting dirty. Most of our employees have spare clothes at all times. You will be covered in dirt and water by the end of the day. And sweat.
You would be described as friendly, hard working, prompt, dependable, reliable, and considerate. We have AMAZING people who work with us now, so our expectations are high!

specific position openings:
We mainly hire our seasonal help during February/March/April. HOWEVER- if you read through everything above and think this is a job you would love and want to apply, please do! We are always on the lookout for help that meets our needs.
As of July 2021, the farm is looking for a full time or part time individual who can jump in and help with greenhouse and farm tasks. It is extremely labor intensive (and obviously in the summer heat).
If you are interested in working part time (two or three days per week) let us know as we may have an opening for you. Our season typically runs April through August.
