link
From September through the end of November 2015 (with possibility of extension), this new Atrium Garden Internship is a 3-hour per week commitment where the participant will learn basic skills on how to take care of plants in the Atrium Garden,  assist with the production of herbal teas offered for free to Atrium users, and assist the project coordinator in making the Atrium a calming green space on the downtown campus.
Some of the skills learned will be pest control, harvesting & drying teas , fertilization, and maintenance of fruiting & decorative plants. We are offering an experience in a campus-based non-profit greenhouse with an exceptional reputation.
This is a non-credit internship, however the participant will receive valuable work experience and a very detailed professional evaluation and reference, as well as the opportunity to learn from many other projects currently taking place at the Concordia Greenhouse.
  Although no experience is required- just a strong desire to learn about and work with plants, reliability, and a good work ethic – individuals with some experience in maintaining plants may be prioritized for an interview.
Please send your resume and cover letter to Paul at houseplants@concordiagreenhouse.com by Friday, September 4th.
