February 2016: Horticultural Internships and Seasonal Gardeners Wanted


Each year the Frelinghuysen Arboretum helps individuals obtain practical, hands on gardening experience by funding an internship at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum. In past years, the Frelinghuysen has been fortunate to have talented interns working in the gardens during the Spring-Fall growing season.

Internships & Seasonal Gardeners begin in early spring and continue through late fall and may run for three to eight months. Interns may work full- or part-time and are admitted on an as needed basis. Applicants must possess a keen interest in horticulture and enjoy working outdoors. Seasonal Gardeners and Interns participate in all aspects of garden and arboretum management from planting and mulching to propagating and record keeping. All rotate through the various specialty gardens and collections and may select and area of concentration.

If you or someone you know would like to learn more about becoming an intern for the 2016 growing season, please have them read the flyer at right and then contact Patti Millar, at 973 326 7629 or email resumes to pmillar@morrisparks.net
