GARDENER

Wolwedans – as part of our sustainability strategy – prides itself on its productive organic vegetable garden, which reduce our Carbon footprint considerably. We serve our clients and staff the freshest herbs and salad greens direct form our Desert Garden. We are looking to expand our crop variety in the years to come and hence need an experienced gardener with “green fingers”.

We would also be interested and open-minded in offering students (both Namibian and/or from abroad) an opportunity for in-house training or practical job attachment for six months or longer. Such students should be in their final years of training with a university, technical college or the like. And, it's got to be organic; composting, earth worms, companion planting and the works …).
