Calling the next generation of horticulturists!
Do you have a passion for horticulture, appreciate history, and love to learn? Are you a college student or recent college graduate having completed six months or more of course work in horticulture (or a related field) and six months or more of horticultural work experience?
If you are serious about growing your knowledge and skills in public horticulture at one of the country’s premier historic gardens, look no further than Winterthur!
We still have openings for up to three Garden & Estate Interns and one Turf & Grounds Intern! These are paid internships and include free housing on-site. The Garden & Estate internships run May through August (flexible start- and end-dates), while the Turf & Grounds internship can start immediately.
All interns work one-on-one with experienced staff. They learn and practice sound horticultural techniques, as well as gain an understanding and appreciation of Mr. du Pont’s original design intent for the historic garden and grounds.
Interns have the opportunity to participate in an array of educational programming including special trainings, plant identification classes, and field trips to diverse horticultural destinations in the region.
For more information about the Horticulture Internship Program at Winterthur and how to apply, please contact Erica Anderson at <email@example.com>. Time is running out, so please act promptly!
