Careers and Job Openings

Forty years ago there were dozens of public plant breeders working on developing grains, vegetables, and other agricultural crops suited to the needs of regional farmers. For example, every region in the US had a land grant university with a breeder spending time on sweet corn breeding. Today, there are only two – one in Wisconsin and one in Hawaii. The result? Fewer regionally adapted varieties being released to farmers and gardeners, and an organic community that is seriously underserved.

Current Job Openings:

Grower Manager — Part Time

Duties:

Your role is two fold:
1. To work with the seed fulfillment manager to curate and grow our existing open pollinated seed collection. Discover new varieties both of heritage and new horticultural significance. Identify what new and old varieties are not only commercially significant but are unique, stable, disease resistant and beautiful. Caretake existing lines by identifying what varieties need to be grown out, selected and maintained. This is a dual role job between two people until we grow to the point of creating a seed Collection Manager position.


2. To build a stable of organic seed growers locally, nationally and internationally in climate-appropriate regions for specialty vegetable, herb and flower seed crops. This is an organizer, caretaker and service position. Seek out talented and dedicated activist seed growers. Keep the growers on task from Seed Crop Reporting to timely submission of high-quality seed at the end of the season. To winnow out unqualified growers from our supply chain. To develop relationships with established grower and cultivate new seed farmers. To initiate seed contracts with growers. To shape economic models to help the farmers and Restoration Seeds mutually grow and thrive. To track seed production through cleaned shipment to Restoration Seeds and intake to the Fulfillment Manager for germination testing. To authorize payment to growers based on fulfillment of the seed contract. To attend bi-annual organic seed and other conferences to develop grower relationships. Pass new wholesale contacts along to the Fulfillment Manager

To clarify, this position works with seed growers directly. The Fulfillment Manager purchases from seed wholesalers. You work together to figure out what we need grown, especially what we cannot source wholesale. As a team you curate the Restoration Seeds collection. 

Qualifications:

You are the mother or father of seed geeks. You love seeds, family farmers being outdoors and being organized. You probably have 5 years of direct or indirect seed, vegetable or herb farming experience. You know your genus, species, stability, phenotypes, genetics, plant populations and climate appropriate regions by species. This sounds like a plant breeder, in a way it is. You find the right growers for the right crops in the right climate to yield the highest quality results. You understand both small-scale family farm and also large-scale commercial production. You get along with people but can be stern to meet deadlines and grow high-quality seed. You are good at developing and maintaining long-term relationships. You prefer working with a small activist company.

Compensation:

The Grower Manager position is a small part-time seasonal position to start. Work is the heavies after the new year lining up growers for the next season. All staff are paid employees with workers comp insurance. The hours and time commitment will grow over time. Your job is to balance the cost of your position with your ability to generate seed revenue by curating a commercially successful seed collection. Work load lets up as farmers start to get in the ground, then you keep tabs on them during the season and more so in the fall.

Start:

We have a part-time opening now for the 2018 growing season.
