    Description

    Hello!
    Our family live and operate a botanical garden and restaurant on the Caribbean island of Nevis, near St. Kitts.

    If you enjoy gardening and appreciate the beauty of nature, gardens, plants, flowers and exotic trees, or have a friendly disposition to help welcome and assist with tourists, then this project on the tropical island of Nevis is for you. Intimate, charming and welcoming with a good dose of Caribbean charm and a majestic central mountain, it is truly a gem of a tropical island paradise.

    This is a great opportunity to experience joining our international team in various capacities of the operation of a popular tourist attraction and helping a nature preserve - meet visitors from around the world; design, implement garden features, or maintain existing ones such as the waterways, and nurseries. YES! weeding is involved:-)

    Creative or eager-to-learn new gardeners, repair and maintenance (experienced and DIY) with varied skillsets; social media experts, event planning enthusiasts, or, just lend us a pair of helping hands in any areas of our operation.

    At this time we especially welcome;
    1) Those with BEE KEEPING experience, landscape and gardening skills or enthusiasts;
    2) Handymen/women with basic to good construction/repair/plumbing/carpentry skills

    On days off you may choose to hike to the mountaintop or to the waterfalls, take a dip in the hot springs, walk around the historic picturesque town center, visit the various beaches or snorkel, and listen to reggae music at lively beach bars. We have been privileged and enjoyed welcoming visitors from various countries, with multiple languages and cultures.

    Accommodations available in two houses with baths and kitchens spread over 3 lush landscaped gardens.

    Long term and couples welcomed. No smokers please. Thank you.

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
