Experienced Gardeners Needed
Experienced gardeners wanted, full time (30-40 hours a week) for local garden restoration company. Must have intimate knowledge of southern perennials, shrubs, and trees, have skill at hand pruning, weeding, digging and dividing, planting and transplanting, be comfortable working alone or in groups, have reliable transportation, and be physically strong and fit enough to be able to work in the hot, humid, and often miserable conditions of Columbia SC. Starting wage is $20 an hour with capacity for growth commensurate with skills and abilities and/or education/certification. Please send email outlining gardening experience and gardening related employment to Joel Gillespie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not apply until you have read over this web site. Hobbyist gardeners familiar with southern gardens and with skills and knowledge outlined above but with no formal job experience are welcome. Working for a landscaping crew or having all and various kinds of power equipment experience does not count as experience for this job. If you don't read gardening books as a hobby this job is probably not for you.
