ABOUT THE BACKYARD URBAN FARM COMPANY
The Backyard Urban Farm Company (BUFCO) is an award winning, family-run, organic vegetable landscaping company that designs, installs, plants, and maintains edible gardens for residential, commercial, and institutional clients throughout Toronto. Our mission is to ignite people’s passion for growing their own food and to help them reconnect with nature.
We are looking for inspired, skilled, committed and self-motivated nature-lovers to join us on our quest to make the world a better place, one beautiful vegetable garden at a time. If our mission excites you, and you are driven to provide excellence in every endeavor, then BUFCO is the home for you.
Your primary responsibility as a BUFCO Gardener is to work in a team of two gardeners, planting and maintaining beautiful, bountiful, incredible, edible gardens as well as some ornamental gardens. You will increase your already existing knowledge of organic growing methodologies and sustainable practices, and will help guide and coach our clients on basic vegetable garden care.
Vegetable gardening is new to many of our clients who will look to the Gardening Team for information and inspiration. You will provide the highest quality work with great attention to detail, and participate in bringing a strong, unique aesthetic vision to their garden.
The Gardener will report to the Company Owners. You will take detailed notes of work accomplished and materials used during every client visit, help to maintain and organize client folders, and assist in other garden care, as well as attending to administrative and organizational tasks as requested.
