    Hello!
    Our family operates a private botanical garden on the tropical island of Nevis, twin island to St. Kitts.

    (IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ NOTES ** AT THE END REGARDING ENTRY REQUIREMENTS)

    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 visitors, then this project may be 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 join our international team and experience various areas of the operation of a popular tourist attraction and helping to preserve nature; meet visitors from around the world; design and implement garden features or maintain nurseries, waterways, and various sub-gardens. YES! a lot of weeding is often involved:-)

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

    At this time we especially welcome;
    1) Those with BEE-KEEPING experience, landscape and gardening skills or enthusiasts;
    2) Experienced Maintenance/Handyperson with basic to good construction/electrical repair/plumbing/carpentry skills
    3) Social media/web enthusiasts

    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!


    **PLEASE NOTE: Currently as of July 2021:
    At this time, our island requires a 4 day quarantine on arrival in Government-designated hotels for vaccinated travellers, with 2 weeks for non-vaccinated, as well as a negative Covid test and test while in quarantine. At present, the cost for that begins at approximately USD $1,1000 for up the 9-day period at the non-resident's hotel, plus a $150 cost for testing after the quarantine before being allowed in to the general population. This may change in the near future, but it is the situation for now.
    **For those with proven skills in the Maintenance categories, we are willing to discuss the costs for quarantine**

    If this is still of interest, I would be pleased to go into more detail about our program individually. We would certainly love to welcome you here as we could use the help,. There is no real tourism to speak of at the moment but we are in the business of gardening, so the work is endless!

    Thanks again, aand safe travels.
