About the Program

Verde Landscape’s training program makes a deep investment in each Verde Landscape crew member through classroom and on‐the‐job training, which can take a crew member from little or no landscaping experience to the skills needed to perform the specialized services we offer. Regular crew members earn a competitive wage, receive Verde‐paid medical and dental insurance, and participate in on‐the‐job training and classroom training.

Training supports our long-term community development goal that each crew member is placed with a destination employer with greater opportunities for wage and career growth, transitions to owning his/her own landscape business, or advances to be the crew leader who trains and supervises future crew members. Our training program’s incentives and benchmarks provide a crew member with a clear pathway to graduation, and post-graduation resources are provided to support placement, entrepreneurship, or crew leader success.
