Looking for a farm job that runs the full life cycle of a crop? One that combines plant knowledge and growing practice with the artistry of flower arranging? The greenhouse is where it all begins! We’re looking for someone with one year of farming experience and a creative eye to work in Red Fire Farm’s greenhouse and flower departments. Spring will be all about seeding and potting up those plant babies while summer brings you out into the field to care for our flower crop from transplanting to bouquet making for our flower CSA, markets, and wholesale accounts.

Responsibilities

* Seed vegetable and flower starts and assist greenhouse care
* Propagation, transplanting, and general care of greenhouse plants
* Watering and venting greenhouse (includes weekend work rotations)
* Harvest and cultivate flowers and prepare bouquets for scheduled deliveries
* Assist with greenhouse and vegetable farm activities as needed

Schedule: Position begins in spring and will end mid to late September. Winter work in other farm departments may be available.

Hours: Typical hours are 6:30 AM to 5:00PM  Monday through Friday plus occasional weekend watering as needed, with a one-hour lunch. Anticipated average of 40-50 hours per week, more hours in peak growing season (up to 60+), less in spring and fall. Due to the nature of farming, all crew are expected to be available to work on the holidays that occur during the active farming season, and to be flexible with the length of work days during the season.

Location: 184 Meadow Road, Montague, MA

$11/hr plus free organic veggies for your personal use.

TO APPLY
