Flower Gardener: One to Three Month Scholarship

We are looking for professional gardeners or people with garden experience to help with various projects in our flower gardens.

Garden Seva team

You may apply for a stay between one and three-months in duration.

General Information: All our summer flowers are used for worship, pujas or garlands. Due to the rocky soil, each garden task requires heavy work. Dry summers and a lack of water can mean long working hours, for early morning and late evening watering, which requires carrying the water by hand to the plants. Extensive, large flower beds need to be weeded regularly. This requires a solid knowledge of perennial plants. Therefore, you should be able to recognize perennials from weeds - even at an early stage of growth.
