We are looking for a team oriented individual looking for full time employment to aid us in offering to our clientele the finest quality plants, products and landscape planting services. We have an immediate opening for a reliable and capable individual in good physical condition for varied labourer duties related to the operation of our 6 acre nursery-garden centre with supporting landscape planting service.

Previous landscape construction or planting experience is preferred, but any recent outdoor work experience of a physical nature (within the last 2 years) is required and should be noted as to the type of work done.

Duties include, but are not limited to, working with plants and installing plantings of all kinds, handling and care of plant material, loading and unloading delivery vehicles and assisting where needed across the entire company. While not a requirement, those mature and insurable individuals with a clean driver's abstract and previous driving experience with a cube van sized vehicle will be preferred. Previous experience or certification with a forklift or tractor is an asset.

This is a full time seasonal employment position, but for those able to continue to work this can be extended until the end of our very busy Christmas season. The position includes a week long summer vacation period also.

Resumes with supporting cover letters will be reviewed first.
