Saturate Gardener (Part time)

Saturate is changing the way urban dwellers approach landcare. At Saturate we believe that the landscape services industry’s highly unsustainable practices are leading to wasted natural resources, degraded soils, contaminated water systems and excessive noise and air pollution. We’re introducing LA-area homeowners to a holistic way of growing a beautiful, sustainable garden.

Skills and experiences:

  • You must identify having a green thumb
  • Must love to be outside. Spent significant time in the wilderness (camping, hiking, etc.)
  • You must despise the loud noise of a lawn mower or a gas powered leaf blower
  • Lift up to 50 pounds using your core for stability
  • Interest in deepening your knowledge about soil, native plants and advanced gardening techniques
  • Good at problem solving and solutions-oriente

Job description:

  • 2-3 weekly on-site jobs
  • Mulching, pruning, hand-watering
  • Planting, thinning, deadheading
  • Tying up plants, vines and shrubs
  • Programming Irrigation Controllers  
  • Making/applying compost and compost tea
  • SPANISH SPEAKING +

We’re looking for someone with a relatively flexible schedule, who’s interested in growing as a “green” gardener. The first 3 months will be viewed as a trial to advance further into the role as a fulltime position.

Compensation: $18-25 / hr (depending on experience) with an average of 12 hrs - 20 hrs of work / week and $12 reimbursement for subsidized lunch
