Student Assistant – City of Seattle Trees for Neighborhoods Project

The City of Seattle’s Trees for Neighborhoods project helps Seattle residents plant trees around their homes. This fall, Trees for Neighborhoods project participants will come to the University of Washington Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture to pick up their free trees and to receive training on how to properly plant and care for their trees.

The UW Botanic Gardens is hiring staff to support this project, and we have a short-term job opportunity for up to 15 students/hourly employees to conduct Trees for Neighborhoods tree planting workshops, teaching the community about tree planting and care, assisting on delivery and pick-up days, and providing logistical support. This work can involve heavy physical work at times. This is an excellent opportunity for students to expand their experience in tree care and community outreach.

To apply, please send your resume to Jessica Farmer, UW Botanic Gardens Adult Education Supervisor, at jsfarmer@uw.edu no later than Thursday, September 15. Early applications are encouraged and applications may be reviewed as they are received.
