Work amidst lush greens and colourful blooms

We’re always looking for hardworking, passionate people to join our team. As one of the largest employers in the Saanich Peninsula, we employ hundreds of people during our peak summer season—some who’ve been with us for fifty years!


Seasonal Opportunities

Because we hire seasonal staff, we accept resumes year-round for a variety of entry-level positions. Learn more about these dynamic departments and how you can support them.

Visitor Services

Providing essential services, Visitor Services collects admission, controls traffic, and maintains The Gardens for the most memorable visitor experience. If you’re a people person with an outgoing personality, Visitor Services’ fast-paced, interactive environment may be for you.

Custodial Services

We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facilities and surrounding environment, from our restaurants to the washrooms. Our custodial crews clean our buildings, from floors to garbage. If you’re a self-directed, hard worker, you can earn a $2.50/hour wage premium on one of our custodial crews.

Food Services

With three restaurants and kitchens, our food services team is always looking for front-of-house and back-of-house support, from hosting to dish washing—and everything in between. Back-of-house candidates must have (or be willing to obtain) FOODSAFE Level 1 certification.

Seed & Gift Store

The face of our retail operations, the Seed & Gift Store staff are friendly and engaging. We welcome people with all levels of sales experience and provide ongoing training in this fun, fast-paced environment. With visitors from around the world, multilingual skills are an asset.


Our gardening staff work outside (and in our Plant Identification Centre!) and enjoy digging, raking, barrowing and pruning seasonally. Botanical knowledge is an asset, and candidates must have (or be willing to obtain) their own pruning shears and CSA-approved footwear.
