Why I work here:
I had feared that checking out of school would mean leaving at the door many of the ideals that brought me to the profession of Landscape Architecture in the first place. In GreenWorks, I found a team dedicated to achieving creative, innovative and quality work, with a strong commitment to environmental and sustainable ethics. While at GreenWorks, I have valued the environment for personal growth that is encouraged and supported. But lets gets serious, what’s not to like about a place where you can shoot a stuffed screaming monkey across the office at your coworkers.
