Contrary to popular belief, working in a Greenhouse and Farm is not like puttering around in your back garden. Working at a Farm involves long hours and lots of hard work.
At Richmond Nursery, we're an incredibly diverse company. Staff are required to participate in nearly all aspects of the business. Staff may work in the greenhouse moving plants around, or working in the strawberry field setting out irrigation pipes, or even lugging pumpkins out of a muddy field. We provide quality seasonal employment and we hope to see our staff returning year after year.
Staff must be in good physical condition and must be willing and able to lift heavy weights, even in the greenhouse. Staff must arrange their own transportation and hours will vary from week to week. We also require than any student looking for work apply themselves - applications or inquiries by parents are not accepted.
To work at Richmond Nursery, you need passion and must love what you do. We believe in people over profit and look for individuals with the same positive outlook on live with modesty and integrity. We pride ourselves on having a crew of people who love what they do and treat each other like family. Quality of life is of utmost importance and we believe in putting family first. Many of our team return year after year for the comradery and respect we give each other so positions are quite limited each year. We also give everyone opportunities to harvest their own fruits and vegetables and a cooperative garden space to grow your own food.
We are currently looking for a mature individual with a good driving record to help deliver plants during our April/May/June season. Hours are variable and flexible. Experience driving a pickup truck with trailer is an asset.
If you are interested in joining our team, send us your resume either by mail, e-mail, or in person.
