Help beautify the Village for the summer.

May 27, 2022: The Village has an immediate need for an experienced gardener, or garden group, with creative vision to shop for plants and then plant the planters around town.  There are approximately 20 of them, including the Village office, the Salmo sign and at KP Park.

We are looking for someone who can create height and visual balance and knows which varieties of flowers and grasses will work together to create gorgeous summer displays around the village.

The Village will pay for all the plants and any mileage costs associated with shopping at a local nursery and provide a $300 stipend.  It is expected that the work can be done over a 1-2 day period and we are hoping to have all of them planted by June 3rd or sooner.  We can also provide a student to assist with planting if needed.

To apply or if you have questions, call or email CAO Anne Williams at (250) 357-9433 or [email protected] or stop by the office.
