Fiesta Gardens is looking for seasonal staff!

Seasonal Retail Associate (Garden Gnome Extraordinaire)

Full + part time (April–July 1st)

We’re looking for friendly, patient and approachable hard-workers who can follow detailed instructions, work both independently and in a group setting in a fast-paced, pollen-filled environment. You’d be surprised, the Garden Centre gets pretty animated in the summer.

The right person for this gig will:

  • Enjoy working outdoors and in all weather conditions
  • Have a flexible enough schedule to work evenings, weekends and holidays as needed.
  • Be able to lift at least 40lbs. Garden stuff is heavy and besides stocking the floor, you’ll need to do things like help customers take their purchases to their cars. Who needs a gym when you can load bags of triple-mix?

You’ll be doing things like:

  • General maintenance
  • Watering plant material
  • Helping customers carry their purchases to their vehicles
  • Loading, unloading, and stocking products
  • Answering questions for our fabulous customers

Retail experience and/or plant knowledge is helpful but not mandatory.

It’s that time of year again, when the ghosts and goblins and scarecrows gather forces and plot their shenanigans for the upcoming Halloween season. And their favourite spot to convene? Why our own spectacular corn maze, of course! They’ll be hanging around and haunting and hiding in an amongst the twisting turning maze for the next couple of weeks, so why not come down to our transformed Garden Centre and say Boo!

One of the great things about observing annual holidays is making and celebrating your own traditions. And at Fiesta Farms we’ve been doing that very thing for a few years now during the weeks that lead up to Halloween, and every year we do it it gets a little better. With Halloween lurking right around the corner, it means one thing; our corn maze is back, and it’s as fun and spooky as ever.

Our Garden Centre is the perfect spot for the corn maze, with plenty of room for twists and turns and surprises along each cornrow and around every corner. Look up, look down, peek into nooks and crannies, around bales of hay and through dry corn husks and dangling spiderwebs, you’ll find something to amuse and cast a spell on you and your little ones.

 

oh hello!

oh hello!

 

The maze is open now until October 31, Halloween, and you can visit it anytime during store hours, nine a.m. to eight p.m.on weekdays and nine to six on weekends.  In fact, for a spookier experience you might you want to visit after the sun goes down.

If you’re not sure you can muster the nerve to visit, you might want to have a sneak peek at this little video we shot of last year’s maze. This year’s model is just as fun, with a few extra surprises thrown in just to keep you on your toes. And feel free to share your experience on your social platforms, take as many photos as you like using the hashtag #Fiestacornmaze. Have a fun and safe Halloween!

Harvesting your Herbs: Dill Seed

00775-PK-P1

 

One of the joys of summer is anticipating and celebrating the arrival of seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs. Many of these have a very short season, so part of their allure lies in their ephemerality. Take dill, for example; one day you have a gorgeous, bushy plant supplying fragrant delicate fronds for all manner of gustatory pleasure, and in the blink of an eye it starts to go to seed.
