Internship - Propagation, Growing, Stock and Shipping

Hiring Organization: Spring Meadow Nursery
Employment type: Internship
Job Location: Grand Haven, MI
Application Deadline: March 31, 2020

     Spring Meadow Nursery produces potted shrub liners which are shipped throughout the United States and Canada.  The liners are propagated by cuttings, they are rooted in 8 acres of Westbrook® greenhouses which are outfitted with traveling irrigators, high pressure fog system and computer controlled environment.  After the cuttings are rooted, they are moved to Westbrook® open roof greenhouses to finish off the plants for sale.

     In 2019 we rooted over 20 million cuttings produced for sale in 2020.  We continue to expand our operations every year and currently have over 35 acres of production area.  Much of our growth can be attributed toward our focus on introducing new and exciting varieties thorough our Proven Winners® Color Choice® brand.  We travel extensively throughout the world in search of new varieties, in addition to our own breeding efforts on site.

     We are continually looking for qualified candidates to strengthen our staff.  Our success as a company is directly related to the success of our team members.  Without them we would not be where we are today.  We offer internships to those looking to increase their experience level while still attending school.  Each of our interns will rotate through the three main production departments in order to gain a well rounded perspective of the full production cycle.

 Internships in any of our three production departments (propagation, growing and stock)

     Interns will work in propagation, growing and the stock department equal amounts of time during their time here. The focus will be to allow students the opportunity to combine what they’ve learned in school with practical experience.  It gives the student the feel for the day to day life in a production setting.  Internships are paid and onsite housing is available for a fee or we can assist in finding suitable living arrangements if needed.  Our goal is that an internship would lead down the path of future employment.
