THE ‘GREEN WOOD’ REGISTERED NURSE ROLE ($42.00 / HOUR)

Green Wood

Green wood is the term used for wood that has been recently cut and, as such … hasn’t had the opportunity to adequately dry. Seasoned wood, on the other hand … is wood, dried to a moisture content of about 20%.

If you were to use green wood in your fireplace … you’d find it releases considerably less heat than seasoned wood – as it needs to ‘spend’ a lot of energy simply evaporating the moisture.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Absolutely nothing … other than the fact our latest role is actually based in Greenwood, Nova Scotia!
