Employment / We are hiring!

The Garden of Weedin’ is hiring!  Qualifications are….

  • Physically fit.  Gardening is tough work.  It requires a lot of bending, kneeling, lifting, walking and stamina.  It involves use of the hands (weeding, pruning, digging, raking, pushing wheelbarrows around).  It’s hot, it’s sweaty and sometimes there are bugs.  Don’t be fooled by Martha Stewart!  This is hard work!  By the end of the summer you’ll be fitter than fit!  Think of it as a paid boot-camp.
  • Experience.  We are willing to train but a experience in gardening is definitely appreciated!  If you know the difference between a weed and a perennial that’s great! If you can tell the difference between a shrub and a tree, even better!
  • A vehicle.  We have tried to work around this before, but having your own vehicle is very helpful. We meet daily onsite at a variety of locations.
  • A great attitude!  Attitude is key when working in a group.  Some times the days are hot, sweaty, dirty and long. We battle bugs, sunburns, and sometimes ridiculously cute dogs.  A good sense of humor and positive attitude are absolutely necessary.
  • The ability to have fun and work well on a team. What can you bring to the team?
  • Our season starts around the end of April and ends when the snow flies which is typically the end of October.  We are flexible and willing to work around summer holidays, festivals and other extra-curricular activities you might have but all in all, we need folks who can be around for the whole season.  Sometimes we might work the odd weekend too because Mother Nature is our boss, ultimately, and weeds won’t wait.
  • Love of nature, bugs, flowers, trees and all things outside.

If this sounds like you, send me an email.  Do you need to send a resume?  Yes, if it’s relevant.  If you have no previous work experience that is relevant, send me an email at ourgardenofweedin@gmail.com anyhow and we can talk!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
