Juniper Ridge is hiring Harvesting Crew Members! (oakland west)

compensation: $18 and up depending on experience

Our business is growing quickly and we need your help! We are looking for 2-4 part-time workers to help us harvest now through mid-December.

The work generally takes place Monday through Wednesday, and often requires staying overnight at the harvesting locations; either in a hotel or at a campsite (we provide transport to harvest locations, hotel rooms if needed, all camping gear, food, and water).

This is a laborer position, the work is physical in nature, and often involves hauling plant material and tree branches across uneven terrain, and up steep slopes.

Harvest locations vary widely, and have limited or no cell phone reception.

The crew leaves our Oakland facility on a Monday morning, and returns Wednesday afternoon of the same week. The schedule is kept as regular as possible, but is not guaranteed, as harvesting can be dependent on weather, land manager requirements, and other logistics; so flexibility is a must.

Skill Requirements:
Able to lift 50 lbs + experience working around/operating heavy machinery (Chipper, chainsaw, etc.)
Overnight travel
Problem Solving ability
Landscaping/ Forestry/farming experience and native plant knowledge a plus!

More about Juniper Ridge:
We formulate Wilderness Perfume by distilling and extracting fragrance from sustainably harvested plants and tree trimmings that we harvest on the trail, and also by using the byproducts of other industries when possible. Our company is built on the simple idea that nothing smells better than the forest.

10% of all Juniper Ridge profits are annually donated to a portfolio of Western Wilderness Defense organizations!
