Crew members work 35-40 hrs/week Monday – Friday and salary starts at $17+/hr, depending on experience.

Our preference is to hire candidates with skills and experience in landscaping, environmental science, masonry or carpentry. BUT, we are truly looking for people who would love to learn these skills, enjoy the benefits of daily “on-the-job” training, show strong attention to detail, and have a good sense of humor to fit in with our fun and friendly crew.
