SHIFT CAN BE ANY DAY OF THE WEEK BETWEEN 9-5.

We are looking for people who are experienced in gardening and landscaping (or willing to learn) to help upkeep the gardens and greenhouses around the sanctuary. Tasks may include but are not limited to weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and digging.

We are an animal sanctuary, so you will get to work around some of the animals like our birds and pigs who are free roaming.

People who are experienced in identifying plants of any age or size are preferred.

This opportunity is for both women and men, as we also have chores such as weed whacking, brush cutting, and chainsawing.
