Diversity rich. Chemical Free. Flowers for all occasions.

Part time Flower Farmer Position
Full Bloom Flower Farm and Floral Design is headed into the 8th season of growing. We specialize in a diverse range of floral crops from sunflowers to garden roses in a one acre growing space just outside of downtown Graton on family property. Markets currently include grocery stores, weekly design accounts, florist sales as well as DIY buckets to weddings and full service weddings. Full Bloom is highly diverse in the crops it grows, it’s outlets and is a no-till operation. We are members of the North Bay Flower Collective and local flower community.

Job Summary
The open position is Mondays and Tuesdays with the option to work Wednesdays as well starting in March. The job involves seeding, transplanting, weeding and harvest.  There is a lot of bucket washing, vase washing and moving of heavy buckets of water. This is not a floral designer position, however, it would be great to be willing to learn how to make mixed bouquets, simple arrangements and straight bunches. Attention to quality is extremely important. Independent work is expected, however most days, folks work with me or another farmer in the field. There is an extreme amount of harvest. Optional design days are available, on wedding weeks.

Job Requirements
Applicants must have at least one year of production farm experience or working on or in a farm training program. We are excited to teach and advance farming skills, but crew members must possess the basics from seeding, to planting, weeding to harvest. Applicants should be in excellent physical condition, be able to lift 50lbs, use implements like wheel barrows and shovels and be comfortable performing repetitive tasks bending over or on the ground, or filling arms with heavy flowers. This just is extremely fast paced and start early in the morning. Easy going attitude and commitment to work days is a must. A strong work ethic and excitement for learning about cut flowers is a must as well.

Compensation
Starting wage is 15$ an hour for new farmers, up to 17$/hour for experienced flower growers.
