2. Garden and Corporate Volunteers:
|GardenWorks - After Sandy, Willowwood needed many helpful hands to clean up debris in the gardens and through the trails. Plus maintaining Willowwood's beautiful gardens takes constant dedication and enthusiastic teamwork - year 'round! The Horticulture Staff is very grateful for the help of Corporate teams as well as the weekly hands on Gardenworks Program Volunteers comprised of Friendly Master Gardeners and Happy Amateurs who learn and work together at the gardens one weekday morning assisting our horticulture staff.
Many local companies have helped by bringing their corporate teams for a "work day" at Willowwood and have performed miracles. A great day in the Outdoors and the Opportunity for instant gratification!

5. Horticultural Internships
Each year the Willowwood Foundation helps an individual(s) obtain practical hands on gardening experience by funding an internship at the Willowwood Arboretum. In 2013, Willowwood was fortunate to have 3 talented interns working in the gardens during the Spring-Fall growing season.
Internships begin in early spring and continue through late fall and may run for three to eight months. Interns may work full- or part-time and are admitted on an as needed basis. Applicants must possess a keen interest in horticulture and enjoy working outdoors. Gardening Interns participate in all aspects of garden and arboretum management from planting and mulching to propagating and record keeping. Gardeners rotate through the various speciality gardens and collections and may select and area of concentration.
If you or someone you know would like to learn more about becoming an intern for the 2013-2014 growing season, please contact Kate Gutierrez at 973.326.7629 or email@example.com.
