Come Grow with Us!

Excellent, professional, knowledgeable, kind, and courteous staff.
~ QBG visitor, Summer 2006


With 39 acres to maintain, QBG’s horticulture
staff can definitely use a helping hand! This environmental sculpture by Allessandra Nichols,
from the exhibit Salvage/Salvation, lends just the
right touch to their workplace.

While the collections are the glories of the Garden, its core strength lies in its human resources. QBG counts its staff among its greatest assets.

QBG welcomes individuals interested in pursuing professional opportunities in all aspects, and at all levels, of botanical garden operations, from visitor services and education, to horticulture, security, and administration. If you enjoy sharing your knowledge and expertise with colleagues, appreciate working with the public, and are eager to learn and grow, we invite you to join QBG’s team.

This page is updated regularly as openings on staff become available, so be sure to check back often.
