Who is Ecoman: Introducing Rachel Weston
Pictured here is Rachel filling containers for the Parts and Labour rooftop garden project, installing a xeroflor greenroof in the beach and planting the woodland garden at Canada Blooms. Rachel started working with Ecoman in fall 2009. She has recently completed the class portion of the Horticulture Technology diploma at Humber College and is working towards completing the apprenticeship component. Rachel has been working diligently since February to improve our systems, prepare the employee manual and initiate safety policies. In her spare time Rachel acts as the Garden Club Coordinator at Dufferin Grove Park and more recently volunteered on both the pollinator garden and the City Parks and Recreation woodland garden on display at Canada Blooms (see earlier posts for more info). Currently Rachel is taking landscape design courses at Ryerson University. I am very happy to have Rachel on board for another season.
