Snapshot into Social Enterprise: Wholesale Nursery

As one of our first supported workplaces, our Nursery employs some of the most experienced support teams in our organisation. We pride ourselves on providing a supportive, engaging work environment for employees to thrive in.

Here’s more on the business, the team you’ll be working with, and your daily tasks.

WA native plant specialists

Our Nursery supplies high quality greenstock and plants all across the state. We specialise in WA natives, in particular plants in the Swan Coastal Plain region.

Our main products are:

  • Advanced trees
  • Shrubs and groundcover
  • Sedges and rushes
  • Ozbreed strappy leaf plants

These plants are often used for large commercial works or rehabilitation projects. We grow and supply the plants needed for the project, and work with the Environmental Services team to get them planted.

For example, we supplied the WA native plants for Yagan Square in Perth City and the large Northlink WA project.

The team

Supervisor Marika leads a passionate team who support and work alongside employees on a daily basis. Everyone is encouraged to try all tasks and work together to complete the job.

In addition to this, you will receive training to build your work skills and learn relevant industry experience.

Daily tasks

Your daily duties change with the seasons and the contracts we receive. Some of these tasks are:

  • Preparing stock for dispatch
  • Quality control
  • Loading trays into the delivery vehicle
  • Weeding and pruning stock

You will also be working in the production shed and assist with moving stock into trays. After that the trays are collected and sorted depending on size, and stacked for future use.

Join the family

When you work at the Nursery it’s not just a job – you also become part of the family. We work hard to create a safe and encouraging space for employees to develop and learn, and have fun of course!

If you’d like to be a part of the family then contact us today here or on 1800 610 665!
