The Organizer, Roland Oehme's Post:
I am looking for part time help to perform landscape maintenance and planting installation work. This is not your typical landscape work. We perform nature friendly landscape maintenance practices that minimize the use of chemicals and machinery. This means that we do much of the work by hand, such as, hand weeding, sweeping, raking, mulching, watering, pruning, etc. Roland Oehme's design work focuses on edible and sustainable gardens. For more info on his work, please visit: www.GreenHarmonyDesign.com. Many of the gardens that we service have been designed by the award winning landscape architecture firm, Oehme, van Sweden & Associates.
There are openings for one to three people. Work is performed two to three times a month currently, which will increase to about four times a month in the spring, and possibly more times in the summer. Persons who are dependable, trust worthy, have good communication skills, have some experience in landscape work, who can lift heavy loads such as a wheelbarrow filled with mulch or a flat of plants, who don't mind working in the summer heat and winter cold, are passionate about doing outdoor garden work with a positive frame of mind, have some knowledge of plants, horticulture, and landscape design, have their own transportation, have flexible schedules, are environmentally friendly, and live a healthy lifestyle (vegetarian and vegans) are preferred. These openings are like internships in that we are providing progressive, nature friendly landscape training while you work with us in exchange for entry level pay.
Persons who are interested in applying should contact Roland immediately at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or P 410.825.3269. To speed up the process, please send your resume to the email address above. You may view Roland's work at www.GreenHarmonyDesign.com.
