SUSTAINABLE, ORGANIC GARENING

Position: Organic Landscape Gardener
Company: Peace Garden
Location: based in East Vancouver, BC

We're a small, organic, environmentally-focused landscape gardening company based in East Vancouver looking for someone who can help us 2 to 4 days a week from 7:30-3:30/4 pm.

We use battery-powered maintenance equipment to promote a cleaner, more peaceful landscaping experience for staff and customers.

The most important things are to be communicative, self-directive, use good judgment, and have strong interpersonal skills because you will be working with other staff and interacting with clients on a regular basis.

We're looking for someone with:

  • Good judgment, organization, and problem-solving skills.
  • An ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
  • Good physical stamina and an ability to lift a minimum of 50 lbs. repeatedly through an entire work shift.
  • An ability to work with hand tools, small engine equipment, and materials.
  • An ability to follow verbal and written instructions.
  • Plant knowledge or a keen interest in landscape gardening is important.
  • A driver's license is an asset but not essential.
  • A positive attitude is a must.
  • Experience is an asset but not essential.
  • Decent strength physical fitness is also important given the nature of the work.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • We do a lot of different things so there's quite a bit of variety to our days.
  • Sometimes we're weeding or mulching, other times we're doing garden installations or renovations.
  • We trim hedges and prune trees, rake up debris and various other landscape maintenance duties.

We support and encourage workplace diversity through our hiring practices and workplace culture. People of colour, Indigenous people, queer, trans and non-binary folks, are all encouraged to apply.
