Biltmore Landscape Manager Lectures to Horticulture Students


Bill Quade, Landscape Manager at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, recently gave a talk to Landscape Management I students enrolled in the HCC Horticulture Technology Program. The Biltmore is currently offering gardening internships to students with horticulture/plant science training. Accepted students will have the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in a real-world setting, while increasing future employment opportunities and building professional skills.

Internships are available that focus on a wide range of horticulture areas: arboriculture, field-to-table food production, greenhouse production, historic garden preservation, outdoor display garden installation, turf maintenance, and integrated pest management. Although no housing is provided, interns will receive monetary compensation while working at one of the most prestigious garden estates in the Southeast. Interested individuals may download additional information and application forms at www.biltmore.com/careers/horticulture. (post by John Sherman)
