Join our team.

Now that we have retired from space gardening, we’re looking for terrestrial help this 2019 gardening season!

Our mission statement: 

Integrating the principles of organic farming, aesthetics, and herbal medicine in order to generate functional, ecological, and beautiful gardens.

The 2019 season will include installation projects in May and June and will be heavy on landscape maintenance throughout the season. Expect to spend most hours on the job performing landscape maintenance such as: weeding, clearing leaves and debris, mulching, pruning or cutting down small shrubs and trees, operating gas powered strimmer, installation of plants throughout the season, etc. WE PULL DANDELIONS—but feel free to take them home and eat them. Experience landscaping in the Rocky Mountain region is highly preferred, however we will give consideration to an applicant with less experience who is enthusiastic and has at least a base understanding of plant identification and physiology. For the less experienced, this is a great paid opportunity to apprentice in this field for anyone interested in ecological landscaping. Possibility to grow with the company and take on considerable responsibility. 

We are hiring for one FULL TIME crew member and one PART TIME crew member

Job Title: Space and Thyme Crew Members

Wage: $17-20 D.O.E.  

Starting time: April 1st (depending on weather) 

Ending time: End of September (depending on weather)

Working hours per day:

  • Varies throughout the season. Early season expect 8 hours. Mid season expect 6 hours. Starting time for work can be as early as 6:30am depending on heat. Preference given to applicants with open and flexible schedules due to the nature of the job.

  • Full time employee: Work will always be 5 days a week (Monday-Friday), but the daily hours are subject to the project of the day. Full time crew member will act as the “right-hand person” who is on the job every day and is given slightly more responsibility.

  • Part time employee: 2-3 days per week of work, can be flexible with schedule if you have another job.

Requirements for job: Applicant must have strong work ethic, willingness to work in all weather and temperatures, ability to safely lift at least 50 pounds, must be comfortable with prolonged period of kneeling and squatting, and must have a drivers license. Ability to drive manual transmission is HIGHLY preferred. But more importantly, preference will be given to applicants with a good sense of humor and a taste for margaritas. 

Please send all inquiries to info@spaceandthymegardens.com including:

  • your name

  • phone number

  • a resume

  • one reference

  • and a brief description of your interest in the job. 

We are more concerned with finding someone who is enthusiastic and able to work hard than someone with a ton of experience who has neither of those qualities. Hope to hear from you soon!
