Landscape Management Internship
Stargate Manor Arboretum is the vision of Mr. George C. Coulam who is the owner and founder of the Texas Renaissance Festival. Our main plant interests center around cold hardy palms, American and Asian lotus, Canna Lilies, and Evergreen Magnolias. We plan to go public once the entire garden infrastructure is completed. We are excited to be starting an internship program at our 200 acre private Arboretum in Spring and Summer of 2018! From this internship the student will learn about the development and maintenance of an ornamental landscape.
Some of the internship duties include being involved in daily management of the grounds crew, pruning and plant maintenance, helping with plant orders, finding plant vendors, pest and disease management, landscape design and layout, creating and operating under an annual budget, maintaining and expanding irrigation infrastructure, and helping develop a master plan. We are interested in an individual that is self – motivated, adapts well to change, excellent interpersonal skills, and a quick and innovative thinker. The intern will work anywhere from 5 – 15 hours a week, whichever is most convenient with their schedule. These hours must be Monday through Friday, between 8:00 – 4:30 p.m. This is an unpaid internship.
