SUFCo is looking to fill one (1) Seasonal Garden Maintenance Management position. This is a full-time, seasonal position (about 5 weeks). Compensation is commensurate with experience.
At Seattle Urban Farm Company (SUFCo), we thrive on pioneering new ideas and empowering city dwellers to reap the rewards of urban food production. We believe that sustainable urban agriculture can promote healthy living, environmental stewardship, and stronger communities. We hope that developing economically sound, city-based farming ventures will increase public awareness of agricultural issues and foster a greater appreciation of farmers everywhere.
A thoughtful design process is essential to the success of every productive garden. A comprehensive site plan allows you to combine elements of your urban farm to create a cohesive, functional, and beautiful space.
A garden design includes scaled drawings of the space, planting recommendations, material specifications, and precise dimensions for garden elements such as: garden beds, pathways, trellises, irrigation, tool sheds, washing stations, greenhouses, and seating areas.
Additional drawings including planting plans, grading plans and renderings can also be produced, as applicable to each project.
Our team of expert builders will translate your garden design from concept to reality.
We create beautiful and functional spaces with sustainably sourced materials and pride ourselves on producing the highest quality, non-toxic garden structures possible.
Garden elements are built from naturally rot-resistant woods, stone, and other long-lasting materials.
All of our installations are built to the highest standards to create beautiful, productive, safe, and ecologically-friendly outdoor environments.
After garden installation is complete, we offer a range of garden maintenance services.
Our experienced farm crew can stop by your garden on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the season. We bring all of the vegetable transplants, seeds, trellises, organic fertilizers, organic pest control materials, and tools necessary to keep your garden healthy and attractive.
You are always welcome to join us during our visits if you’d like to learn more about edible gardening. We keep you up to date with emails and newsletters detailing what is ready for harvest, what is coming soon, and other seasonal garden topics.
