Planting Fields is a spectacular 409-acre public garden located on the north shore of Long Island. This former Gold Coast estate features specimen trees, ornamental shrubs, herbaceous plantings, 2 1/2 acres of display and production greenhouses, historic buildings and a 65 room Tudor revival mansion. The arboretum features one of the most comprehensive woody plant collections in the Northeast. The interns will assist the horticultural staff in caring for a diverse collection of hardy and non-hardy plants.

Send a letter of intent to us stating why you are interested in applying for the internship. The application form and information packet will be provided. Completed applications should include official transcripts, three letters of reference and a resume.

Horticultural Interns need a passion for working in a public garden setting. They will receive practical, hands-on experience in all phases of maintenance, landscape design and enhancement of a diverse collection of horticultural plant collections within the 409-acre arboretum. Planting Fields is an intact historic estate designed by the Olmsted Brothers as well as an active arboretum with many unusual greenhouse and hardy plant collections. General duties will include planting, pruning, and watering, weeding, mulching and garden renovation.

Other Information: The interns will also help to maintain and enhance many special gardens such as the Dwarf Conifer Garden, Hydrangea Garden, Woodland Garden, Synoptic Garden, Rhododendron Collection and Formal Gardens. All interns are invited to participate in near-weekly educational field trips to private and public gardens, nurseries and growers on Long Island and the surrounding areas.
