The LodgeStaff/Garden Help position is responsible for upkeep of the lodge gardens, flower beds, containers, greenhouse and grounds. While it would be nice to be outside full time, most of the time in this position is spent in the lodge during the heart of the summer season. Early in the season all vegetable and flower beds and planters must be planted, hardened off and watered. The Lodgestaff/Garden Help takes the lead in these responsibilities, spending a lot of time digging in the soil. After everything is planted this position is focused more on customer service in the lodge with some time each day to maintain the gardens.
We plant 2 – 50’ rows of primarily annual and vegetable plants each summer. Knowledge of cool climate vegetable crops and annual flowers is helpful. The Sheep Mountain Lodge is located in a Zone 2/3 climate, we grow only the most hardy perennials. Each summer we add additional plants to our existing perennial beds including our 100 square foot rock garden. Job responsibilities include: watering, transplanting, greenhouse plant watering and care, cleaning and bed planting. This position helps in the Lodge each evening with dinner service. Minimum age 21 and TAP card required for beer/wine service in the lodge, this can be completed at the lodge.
