Flower and Vegetable Gardener (Boulder, CO)

compensation: 17-20$/hour starting rate
employment type: employee's choice

Looking for an experienced gardener to help our independent residential garden business for the 2021 season.

Work will begin as soon as weather permits in early March and continue through November or mid December.
We generally work 8 hours a day; 8-4 in the cooler months, 7-3 in warmer months. I am open to running a flexible schedule for the right person.

I have been working in Boulder for 18 years maintaining beautiful residential properties, mostly on Mapleton Hill and near Chautauqua park. The business has grown via word of mouth, and flourished in the care of the fun, excellent crew we put together each season to help care for the gardens.

Work includes planting and maintaining vegetable and perennial gardens, designing and planting annual containers, pruning, weeding, watering and general outdoor property maintenance. We use organic methods for pest and plant disease management. We do not mow lawns. The work can be challenging and gets hot in the high summer months. The current crew and I are happy to train anyone with a great work ethic, interest in plants, and some experience gardening, personal or professional.

We are a small crew who work sometimes closely together and sometimes independently. Self-motivation and reliability are a must. Looking for hard-working people with friendly customer service, happy to spend extended hours in the Colorado sun.

Please send a resume, letter of interest, and availability with your reply.
