Part Time Floral Designer
We are seeking a confident floral designer to help us fill wedding orders in 2018. This is a part-time, seasonal position from approximately May 15th through October 10th, usually working Thursday through Sunday. You will be responsible for creating fab floral arrangements based on our brides' colors and style, and what we have coming out of the fields. Design will include all aspects of weddings, including bridal bouquets, boutonnières & corsages, hair flowers, ceremony dècor, and reception flowers. Depending on our schedule and your previous experience, you may be responsible for meeting with brides, conceptualizing color palettes & style, and dictating a harvest list. If you would like to be part of our harvest crew, we'd love your help in the field as well. In 2017, we designed over 70 weddings and plan to expand in 2018, so strap yourself in for plenty of work and plenty of fun!!
We prefer local applicants, so that you can come interview with us in the studio before the season is over. Pay is hourly, dependent on experience.
Our apprenticeships are filled for 2017, but check back in early 2018 for opportunities to work in the field & studio.
Meanwhile, take a look at the page below to learn what our apprentices do, and follow us

You can also get in touch with Helen if you're interested in volunteer opportunities.
Why Work at Farmette Flowers?
Our little flower farm offers much more than growing and arranging. Since we are on the property of the Lyons Farmette and work closely with the venue owners, there are opportunities to work weddings as staff, to care for our chickens and alpacas, and of course to wander the fields and learn as much as possible. We keep bees, make compost, and provide veggies to farm dinners and local chefs, and we host on-farm workshops throughout the season in various homesteading and cooking topics. To learn more about the wedding venues, visit the Lyons Farmette website.
Learn to farm flowers. You will work closely with Grant and Helen to sow seed, transplant seedlings, make compost and compost tea, prepare beds, and weed plants. You will learn harvest and post-harvest handling techniques, make market and CSA bouquets, wash lots of buckets, and support the design team in setting up weddings. Live in a restored Airstream trailer on our quiet farm, with access to our communal vegetable garden and eggs from our chickens, learn beekeeping if you are so inclined, take any of our on-farm workshops for free, plus get as much goat and alpaca love as you can handle. Live in Lyons, home of 2 world-class music festivals, close to Rocky Mountain National Park and Boulder. Paid monthly.
