Looking for a Gardner to share their passion and expertise. Students work in the school’s garden and greenhouse daily. Students have the opportunity to learn all aspects of horticulture, from soil preparation to harvesting. The student-built geodesic-dome greenhouse, hoop greenhouses and garden bus classroom serve as the hub, and students maintain those spaces in working order. Food from our garden provides organic options for our kitchen and cafe. The program is part of our health program and focused on mindfulness. 

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain and grow the garden to ensure it meets specific requirements and expectations.
  • Perform basic maintenance such as cutting the grass, emptying bins, managing weed control and leaf raking.
  • Plant and nurture new trees, flowers, and various plants.
  • Work with hand tools and basic light machinery such as plant vehicles, and small diggers.
  • Service all garden equipment and machinery.
  • Maintain a clean garden by clearing rubbish and litter from the garden and grounds.
  • Provide guidance to management on matters related to the garden.
  • Advise management on the costs of plants and garden necessities with detailed written quotations and reports.
  • Ensure a safe environment for staff and clients by adhering to safety and health regulations.
