How would you like to help lead the way to a greener, more sustainable future? Do you like growing food, gardening, designing, landscaping, and teaching? If this sounds like you, we have a career opportunity that we wanted to pass along…
You might remember a Kickstarter campaign that we supported back in June for Justin Rohner and his company, Agriscaping. Well, that Kickstarter campaign was a success, to say the least. And Justin just got back in touch with us to ask us for help with a problem his company is having. Their problem? They’re getting too much business!
Agriscaping is getting a huge volume of new customers from all over the country, and their team isn’t big enough to handle all of the new customers. So, they are opening up their training programs to give a select number of people the chance to get involved and become Agriscaping Certified consultants. They’re looking for qualified people to become certified for each of the following positions:
• Educators – For those with a passion for teaching and solid gardening knowledge. Apply Below.
• Maintenance – For those who love caring for plants and have solid gardening knowledge. Apply Below.
• Harvesters – For those with a passion for fresh, local food and solid gardening knowledge. Apply Below.
• Designers – Best fit for those with landscape design experience. Apply Below.
• Contractors – Available for bonded and insured landscaping contractors. Apply Below.
Each of these positions can be a full time job, or a part time job for supplemental income. You make your own schedule and work at your own pace. You spend your entire day walking around gardens and meeting like minded people who are excited to have your help. Sound good?
When you’re certified, Agriscaping will send you clients in your area who are looking for help with the gardens at their homes, schools, and churches. And you’re free to build your own client list as well – you can use your Agriscaping skills on any project you find on your own.
The process to become certified is simple and straight forward. You start by sending in an application to Agriscaping. After your application is accepted, you will complete an online course – with homework. The courses are taught each week and they last between 8 to 12 weeks, depending on the position. The certification fees are $800 for Educators, Maintenance, and Harvesters; $1,250 for Designers; and $3500 for Contractors. As an affiliate of Agriscaping, the [Grow] Network will receive a small percentage of any revenue generated by this promotion.
This is a great opportunity for landscapers who want to expand their businesses, gardeners who want to become more involved in their local food communities, and anyone with gardening experience who wants to move into a gardening-related career. If you know a landscaper who may be interested in helping to grow food, please pass this along to them.
The links below go to the application forms for each position. Your application will be reviewed by Agriscaping, and they will contact you directly. There is no charge for applying.
