We are also very open with communication and extremely understanding of the life you have outside of work. If given notice we will work to accommodate your life outside of work if you need to end early a certain day. Same things goes for any vacations you may want or need to take during the season.

The ideal candidate will have a background in horticulture with either formal knowledge or general experience working with plants.

Preference will, however, be given to those with formal education / past experience.
