Agriculture comes to the fore in terms of outdoor activity in a low-stress environment. Specifically, working with trees, according to an article this week from the Washington Post’s Data section, by Andrew Van Dam, titled “The Happiest, Least Stressful, Most Important Jobs in America.”
Garden centers were significantly higher than hotels, restaurants, medical centers and manufacturing. “After 30 years of doing the same job, I look forward to the start of every week,” says Ken Lane, owner of Waters Garden Center. “Working in a nursery is exciting and rewarding, and the gardeners are just fun people to help out with.”
It’s all about timing. January and February are open windows for those who want to join the agribusiness team. Agriculture and garden centers are special places where employees put down roots.
“More team members retire from their jobs than team members leave for new ones,” says Mackenzie Lane, general manager at Waters Garden Center. “Even our seasonal employees, who only work during the growing season, average more than 5 years of service. They take the winter off and look forward to joining the team in the spring,” says Ms. Lin. Don’t delay if you want to work in a happy place. And rewarding.Working at a garden center is a time crunch, and they are hiring now.
