We are a Brooklyn-based, women owned gardening company searching for a part-time gardener to join our team. The position is for 3 days a week,Tu/We/Th, beginning spring 2023. 

We’re looking for someone who shares our love of all things gardening… and who is able to carry a 50lb bag of soil up the stairs of a building with no elevator, and then do it a few more times! We work hard, but we have fun doing it. 

Our specialty is the design and installation of both residential and commercial gardens, including rooftops, terraces, inground, container gardens, and common spaces. We also have maintenance contracts so we get to know many of the gardens very well. 


  • Installations: load in, prepare beds and/or planters, plant according to design plans, clean up, load out, take a moment to observe what we’ve accomplished before leaving it for the clients to enjoy!
  • Maintenance: prune, weed, trim, divide, transplant, swap out seasonal plantings, and clean up in existing gardens


  • 2+ year(s) of horticultural experience
  • Willingness to work in inclement weather
  • Ability to lift 50+ lbs
  • Hardscaping/construction experience is a plus
  • Irrigation experience is a plus
  • Driver’s license is a plus
