Job Description 

Head Gardener for a notable American garden and 501c3 foundation, which welcomed 5,000 visitors last year. Hortulus Farm is a 100 acre 18th C. farmstead and pleasure garden created by noted landscape designer Renny Reynolds and garden writer Jack Staub in historic Bucks County, PA, boasting a total of 24 gardens on 30 of its acres. It is a member of Greater Philadelphia Gardens and was made the second-only-in-their-history Affiliate Garden of The Garden Conservancy in 2016. A Guide To The Great Gardens of the Philadelphia Region said of it in 2007: "18th and 19th Century buildings are surrounded by such horticultural opulence that the scene registers as both sublimely serene and surreal."

Duties & Responsibilities 

Garden maintenance working in concert with our farm manager and a garden helper. This is a hands on job, including spring cleanup, mulching, deadheading, winter propagation, watering, annual planting, lawn care, woodland maintenance, etc. The ability to lead tours knowledgeably would also be appreciated.

Education and Experience 

A horticultural degree and at least 5 years of experience.
