Looking for a Job This Summer? Solar One Is Hiring a Seasonal Gardener
Solar One/ Stuyvesant Cove Park is looking for a full time seasonal gardener from May through October. Stuyvesant Cove Park is an organic, all native species park on the East River at 23rd Street in Manhattan.
Under the supervision of the Park Manager, the gardener is responsible for the daily upkeep of the park's garden areas, including all weeding, watering, mulching, pruning and planting. All work is done with non-mechanized tools, which the gardener will keep inventory of and maintain. Light grounds work such as repairing fencing might be included in addition to simple data collecting and record keeping. The seasonal gardener will also assist in the supervision of interns and volunteers and must have leadership or teaching experience. This is a great opportunity for someone who is knowledgeable of NE native plants and wants to work at a small park, where he or she can have a greater degree of creative input both with the park plantings and with potential teaching opportunities. Workweek is Tuesday through Saturday, 35 hours per week.
