2021 Merryspring Nature Center Garden Internship

  Seven Wednesdays April 28th- June 9th 10am-2:00pm 

Join me for 7 Wednesdays this spring at Merryspring Nature Center for the 2021 Garden Internship*. We will follow the flow and weekly needs of the garden through conversation, observational garden walks and hands on work, covering the themes of Garden Design and Layout, Welcoming The Plants, Reconsidering Invasive Plants and Weeds, Tending to the Gardener, Native and Endangered Plants, Medicine- Beauty-Food, and more. Each week a handout and/or reading resources will be provided. 

This hands on opportunity is designed for the total garden novice or for someone who wants to spend some early season hours helping out at their local non-profit nature center, from students 16 and up to seasoned gardeners in their elder years looking for community. Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed and the program may be adapted for any safety needs. After the internship is over interns can apply to be kept on as an intern-worker for the duration of the season with an hourly stipend. For more information and a brief application please email gardens@merryspring.org. Applications are accepted until April 14th or all spots are filled.

*This opportunity is offered free of charge funded with a generous donation through Merryspring Nature Center
