HORTICULTURE INTERNSHIPS - 2009
At the Frelinghuysen Arboretum
2008 HORTICULTURE INTERNS ENJOY ARBORETUM EXPERIENCE
Jeanne Lardino & Ryan Moore
January 30, 2009
We come from different backgrounds and have slightly different goals. Ryan is a home landscape gardener and college student focusing on landscape design and Jeanne is a home vegetable gardener and graduate of the Master Gardener Program investigating a new career.
During our time here, we were encouraged to explore the gardens weekly to observe the progression of bloom, foliage, and seed. We were also involved in propagating some of next year’s plants from cuttings. We enjoyed access to the library and educational programs offered by the Friends.
We enjoyed our internships and have benefitted by expanding our horticultural knowledge, improving our skills, and refining our career goals. We extend our sincere thanks to the Park Commission, Friends, and staff for making them possible.
If you or someone you know would like to learn more about becoming a horticulture intern, please contact Kate Gutierrez at 973-326-7629 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Internships begin in early spring and continue through late fall and may run for three to eight months. Applicants must possess a keen interest in horticulture and enjoy working outdoors.
The Morris County Park Commission is an equal opportunity employer.
