In her spare time she loves to perform, and uses her crafty skills to make outrageous costumes and mix show tune mashups.

Jethro Sweird

Production Coordinator
close

Jethro has been with Greenscape since 2007 in the role of Production Coordinator, which means he is responsible for overseeing many of our custom designs and fabrication projects. Everyday he looks forward to working with such a positive team (that is what you call a group of women you deal with daily – “a positive team,” though on some days, Jethro has other words to describe this phenomenon…).

With over 18 years of warehouse and custom furniture building experience (yes he is the oldest feller at Greenscape), Jethro is a fountain of knowledge and bad puns and enjoys designing and building whatever custom projects we can throw at him.

When he is not at Greenscape, Jethro can be seen performing with his reggae/ska band, Los Furios, spending time with his twin boys or playing croquet with The Delta Triple Peels.

Interesting Fact:

Jethro has over 400 hotwheels hidden in his home. This is a secret collection, so don’t tell his girlfriend.

Jenna de Kleer

Decor Services and Floral Designer
close

Jenna started at Greenscape in the summer of 2010, and works in the warehouse creating floral designs and arrangements, organizing inventory as well as preparing film and event orders. Her favorite part of the job is going onsite to set up the decor elements with the rest of the team; there is a feeling of fulfillment at the end when you look around and see all the different items together in a grand display.

Her previous experience includes working in the floral industry since 2005 after graduating from Kwantlen University College with a certificate in Commercial Floristry and later a Floral Arranging Certificate Program and has also completed a Wedding Planning course at BCIT. Jenna has worked with a wedding/events decorator, and in various office and customer service settings, which further kindled her passion for event decorating and design. When she’s not working for Greenscape, Jenna moonlights with her own small, home-based floral design business and creates arrangements for friends and family.

In her spare time, she enjoys watching movies with friends, baking tasty treats in her kitchen, and playing a round of Carcasonne or Settlers of Catan.

Interesting Fact: Jenna and her husband have a pet turtle (Red Eared Slider). His name is Rosco. He’s awesome!

Some of her previous accounting positions were at Western Stevedoring, Red Cross Society, Salvation Army and In Balance Accounting Services. She is an integral part of the Greenscape family!
