time to time Native American Seed has openings for apprentices
at our farm, or at our offices in nearby Junction, Texas.
Office opportunities include learning about various aspects
of the mail order business including marketing, order
fulfillment and customer service, plus working on our
website and print catalog. On the outdoor side of the
business, we welcome inquiries from people in other regions
of the country who would like to learn more about the
"supply side" of the native seed business. This
includes a lot of hard work - from adapting conventional
farm equipment to native seed planting and harvest use,
to conducting harvests and cleaning seeds. Relevant agricultural
experience is a big plus.
the coming year, we are planning to develop part of our
land as a beautiful facility with housekeeping cabins
and trails for those who would enjoy spending a weekend
or a week in the Texas countryside. We'll be looking
for people who have a feel for the land, and a handy touch
with the right tools, to help us develop trails and make
it easy for folks to get around our native landscape and
can offer assistance in finding suitable lodgings in Junction,
and enough money to tend to your everyday needs. Some
apprenticeships have the potential to grow into long-term
suggest you look through the Website in detail, and find
out more about us first. We also feel obliged to warn
you that Junction is a quiet little town of about 2500
souls, where they roll up the sidewalks after dark. If
you're still interested after all that, send an email
and put "apprenticeship" in the subject line.
Tell us about yourself, your interests and background,
and what you'd like to get out of spending three to six
months working with us. We'll get back to you just as
soon as we can.
