Hello all gardeners in Ireland. I am a new member but I live in Canada. Although I have not been to Ireland I love to be able to view the landscapes of the country and hope one day to visit Ireland.
I have joined this forum becasue I am a student and love to find out what everyone is doing in their own gardeners and what works for them. So thank you for letting me join.

Hello everyone, I am a horticulture student on Vancouver Island Canada. I need to work for 12 weeks from mid May to beginning of August in a horticulture position. I am hoping that there maybe a position in Ireland where I can work. If anyone know of such a position would you please let me know.

Regards,

Thank you all for the welcome. Sarah would you ever consider hiring a student from Canada for the summer season?

Hello, I would be very happy with any position where I can deal directly with all the plants. If I could work with a grounds keeper that would be a tremendous opportunity to learn. I know there are a number of large estates and other open to the public facilites that require groundskeeper helpers. The variety of work is what I would be looking for, for summer employment.
Working at a nursery would also be great.

If this could be made possible to work in a country known for some of the most beautiful gardens, I can't tell you what a tremendous learning experience this would be.

Anything that can be done would truly be appreciated.

Regards.
Lynn

Hi Lynn

Just read your message. Would love to but already having to cut staff hours as the weather etc is making it a slow start this year.

Will keep my ear open for any possibilities.
