Job position / title
Assistant Greenhouse Grower
Name of business / employer
Fourth Corner Nurseries
Job description / duties
In operation for 36 years, Fourth Corner Nurseries is a producer of native plants for the restoration and wholesale nursery markets for the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We specialize in bare root native plants including trees and shrubs, perennials, bulbs, graminoids, and aquatics. We also grow a selection of native plugs (conifers, evergreen shrubs, annual and perennials) in our expanding greenhouse program.

Job Description & Duties:

The Assistant Greenhouse Grower is responsible for fulfilling the daily needs of two greenhouses and adjacent outdoor growing spaces. Daily tasks include assessing crops to determine irrigation needs, hand watering, programming and/or manually running overhead irrigation, using a fertilizer injector, and keeping accurate irrigation records.

The primary responsibility of this position is weekend watering. Once trained, you will be expected to independently assess crop needs and irrigate according to growing plans on Saturdays AND Sundays. Communication between the greenhouse manager and grower is essential, and will be both written (through watering logs) and in person. Beyond watering responsibilities, there will be an opportunity to work on propagation tasks (crop thinning and transplanting), prepare orders, and collect crop monitoring data, among other greenhouse related tasks. This is a physical position, requiring extended periods of standing, walking, bending, and at times repeated lifting of up to 50 pounds in a wide range of temperatures and humidity. This is also a new and expanding part of our business. Greenhouse protocols are still being developed and refined, and trials are being conducted alongside production crops. This is an exciting time at our nursery.

We occasionally apply fungicides to maintain crop health. You will be trained in how to safely work around pesticides, and must be willing to work around crops that have been sprayed. Appropriate personal protective equipment will be provided.

An ideal candidate will…
• Be ready to learn on the job and willing to take on responsibility
• Possess good communication skills and strong attention to detail
• Work well independently and with a team
• Possess professional or academic experience working in plant production- propagation experience is preferable
• Be extremely reliable and available to work Saturdays and Sundays- consistent attendance at work is essential to this position
• Attempt to solve problems independently, and know when to ask for help
• Be flexible and willing to adapt to changes in methods, protocols, and the needs of the season
• Be able to accept constructive feedback
• Be comfortable using a tablet or smartphone, and able to record data accurately both on paper and a computer
• Familiarity with native plant species and botanical nomenclature is helpful but not essential

Application deadline / closing date
Salary / rate of pay
Days and hours of employment
Weekend watering on Saturdays and Sundays is the primary responsibility of this position. The number of hours required to water all crops will fluctuate throughout the year. The rest of your hours are flexible, but will ideally take place during 1-2 weekdays (between our business hours of 8-4) so that you can communicate with the greenhouse manager, be trained on new tasks, and assist with other projects in the greenhouse and around the farm.
