We’re looking for well-organized, motivated students who enjoy strenuous, rewarding work taking care of dirt, plants, and customers. The daily duties include field care of bulb crops and interspersed plantings, weeding, dividing, digging and shipping orders, and planning for events and tours.
We also do garden design and care of specialty gardens such as meadow and perennial gardens. Some of this work is on the road from Charleston to Atlanta.
Specialty areas of work can be assigned based on our need and intern interest.
Please be a second-year or older student working on a degree in horticulture, design or related fields. Please provide references and a resume.
Pay: $13 per hour. Plus plenty of meals, travel cost and housing on the farm, field trips and cost of professional events covered.
Housing: included in a small, lovely barn studio. (which is also used for classroom during events.) When on design work, housing varies, sometimes in hotels sometimes as guest of clients.
Dates: internships work during the summer. We are flexible in date ranges and days off.
Recent interns have continued from here to:
1. Tulane University (PhD in Environmental Science),
2. Togo with Peace Corp (Composting Project),
3. Atlanta Botanical Garden (Gainesville Location),
4. Graduating from UGA in Secondary Education.
We are a small, family owned business. Communication, consideration, and desire to be part of our community are critical. Please review our website, Facebook, etc., to see if you would be a good match for our small team. If you’d like to speak to former interns, please inquire.
