Please read the ad in full
Work in an incredibly scenic forest near the ocean, at an established, well respected rare plant nursery featuring outdoor plants that are not common.

On some work, pay will be higher than base pay such as occasional tree work or landscape planting for others.


If you are you a nature and science type, a good thinker, you might be the perfect fit.

There are trails throughout the nursery that provide a park like feel making it unlike other nurseries. It is not just rows of plants in plastic pots.

Attitude, drive and wanting to learn, is more important than experience.


Note: Job is flexible on days, full days 2-4 full days a week. Could be full time for right person who shows drive and right hand man interest.

Here's an opportunity in a great spot
with a scenic lake, stream, small waterfalls and cliffs. It really motivates.

If you have a keen eye, are observant, and into the plant world and are thinking of a career in it, this might be for you...there is much to learn.

The nursery is also a "destination spot" for relaxing, botanizing, hiking and camping also. That is one of the upcoming goals: to make it more of a destination spot...somewhat like the botanic gardens of Boothbay, on a smaller scale.

There is a very scenic and spacious tent campground is on the property. There could be work with campground upkeep and greeting campers if your comfortable.


SOME OF THE NURSERY WORK: transplanting plants in the field and forest...can train you in twenty minutes. Watering, weeding, plant care. Getting to know the plants and needs. Occasional large plants to be moved, always with a helper. Trail upkeep. Some work on your own, some with another helper or me. I'm a good teacher.

If you have a good memory that would be a plus.

New....6000 strawberry just planted last year ...taking care of them. They are a challenge but it's a rewarding aspect to the job.

You ARE GOING TO FET DIRTY AND GRUNGY ...it's all outside ...be ok with that. Be in reasonable shape.

Lots of grunt work but "fun" grunt work and lots to learn.

If you have a good eye and can connect with nature this might be for you.

If you like chain saw stuff there is occasional thinning of forest/chain saw work. (This is NOT mandatory)

Helping to keep the deer fence in good shape.

Other general labor. Mechanical skills are a plus but not essential. Having a good eye and seeing problems is a plus.

For someone who wants to "get into it", learning the plants and interacting with customers down the road. (Not mandatory)

Occasional landscape work at higher pay installing plants, often in great scenic locations. No grass cutting.

A place where you can get back to nature.

Bonus trips to botanical gardens and other nurseries also.

So, tell me a little about you, background, interests, work history and what interests you about this job. Include your phone. I WILL NOT get back to anyone without a phone number. PLEASE don't forget that.

You might be the right fit! Escape the rat race. I am looking for that "right hand man."


I can possibly provide housing with camping on property or a room at my place in Brunswick.

$21 CASH/hour to start. Bonuses for good work. This could be your career.

Totally unrelated, I might be starting a company building high end home speakers, a very tough field but if you have an interest in audio--speakers, let me know.
