Internship - St. Charles, IL Location

The Landscape Horticulturist Intern will work with several seasoned horticulture and gardening experts to assist in areas such as planting installation, garden care, pruning, mulching, cultivating, weeding, label production & ID, planting design and general garden care for demonstration gardens at the St. Charles location. Additional skills to be touched upon will include Plant ID, weed ID, basics of planting design, This year’s program will be connected with a new Cooperative Partnership between Midwest Groundcovers, Cantigny Gardens, Olbrich Botanic Garden and Lurie Garden at Millennium Park. These Cooperative Partners are working at developing a season long Apprenticeship program for the future with the intent to develop individuals with the skills to become a Plant System Specialist with a focus on maintaining and developing naturalistic style gardens such as in the style of Piet Oudolf or Roy Diblik. We will seek input from the intern on how to craft the future program and at least one event will be coordinated with these partners.
