Have a teenager looking for work experience over March break? We are hiring six high school students to help with greenhouse production over spring break. The commitment required is a minimum of 3 x 6 hour shifts (10 am to 4 pm, between Tuesday - Friday of spring break). Duties include pot filling, transplanting, seeding/cuttings, plant maintenance, setting up plants in greenhouses, and tidying. No previous greenhouse experience required.
Please note: there is no bus service to our location, so students need to be able to get to Sage Garden on south St. Mary's Road. The job requires sustained physical activity, the ability to follow instructions accurately, and the ability to work in a warm (can be hot!) environment. We do not permit the use of cell phones or other electronic devices while on shift (these must be left in our staff area while working). Students are required to have a Social Insurance Number, so as to be paid.
Students interested in this opportunity can email us using this link, with a quick cover letter explaining why they are interested in working at Sage Garden.
