Seasonal Gardener

(Paid Opportunities) Return to Paid Opportunities

Start Date: June 2020

Manhattan Garden Arts provides horticultural services and exterior plantings for prestigious buildings and clients in upper Manhattan. We are currently seeking gardeners for the 2020 summer, fall and winter season.


Arrive on time, 6:45AM. Work involves changing out annual displays, handling and planting shrubs and small trees, and general garden maintenance tasks. Maintain a neat appearance both for the garden and yourself. Enjoy the day and work as a team member of a crew.


Experience in planting is preferred, but we are happy for you to learn, so shortage of experience is compensated by desire to learn. A general knowledge of plants and horticulture. Heavy physical labor is involved in the landscape installations of trees and shrubs, but most of the work is in planting annuals and tending to the gardens. Must be able to lift a 40-lb bag. Aesthetic sensibility is equally as important. Work is part-time and seasonal so the ability to work in the heat and occasional showers of summer is required and cool mornings as we move into fall, but we call the days on downpours or heavy snow so flexibility according to the weather is also appreciated. Ability to tolerate inconsiderate dog-owners preferred but not required.

Additional Information

Please provide resume and brief cover letter including desired compensation. Thank you.
