Gardener Neighbourhood business Selwerd

Wijkbedrijf Selwerd • job opening nr. 13030

Interesting about this job

Wijkbedrijf Selwerd's front garden project was set up to help people with their neglected front gardens. People who have lost the overview, can no longer physically cope themselves and/or have no money for a landscaper, can ask Wijkbedrijf Selwerd for help in making their front garden beautiful again. This is nice for both the resident and the neighbourhood!

In addition, we would like to see fewer petrified front gardens in the neighbourhood, as part of 'Operation Stonebreak'. More greenery is better for drainage and critters. Also in the case of a petrified front garden, people can ask us for help to make a plan and to remove and dispose of the stones and put back new plants. To make all this possible, we are looking (besides regular volunteers) for someone with an understanding of plants and gardens. Someone who enjoys helping people with a new idea for the garden.
