Posted by West Philadelphia Skills Initiative on June 15, 2021

Green City Works, in collaboration with Drexel University, is immediately hiring temporary Laborers earning $15/hour plus $2 hazard pay to construct and install specifically designed planter boxes on residential streets in Hunting Park, North Philadelphia. Please apply or share widely with anyone who may be looking for temporary work.

Adhering to safety guidelines, Laborers will work in teams which are led by experienced woodworkers to construct the planters. The planter boxes are being built as part of a heat risk reduction program. Each box includes a built-in bench, umbrella attachment, soil, and vegetation. They will be constructed and partially assembled in a temporary woodshop in Hunting Park. They will then be transported to residential blocks in North Philadelphia to complete assembly and installation.
