Carly-Jean (@CarlyJeanBean) talks about internship at PSU Arboretum! #greenthumb



Carly-Jean Schaefer, 2015 Student Teacher
Don’t you just love when the sun is shining, birds are chirping, and the trees and flowers are in full bloom? Well Carly-Jean Schaefer (@CarlyJeanBean), a 2015 student teacher at Ft. Cherry High School, loves it! Carly-Jean is an Agriculture Extension and Education major, minoring in environmental inquiry with an emphasis in Recreational Parks and Tourism Management as well as Agribusiness! This internship was right up her ally because she actually has been able to work this summer as the horticultural intern with the Arboretum at Penn State! She has been learning a lot and is gaining experience working with plants and soil.

Carly-Jean found out about the internship opportunity from an email that was sent across the agriculture college! Since Carly-Jean took her English 202C class, which preps you for job applications and interviewing, she was well prepared and on her way for an interview! After Carly-Jean received the job, she learned what she was going to do for the summer. “My internship consists of day to day maintenance around the arboretum, propagation, interacting with the public and acting as a facilitator in the garden.” She also states that her job duties change a lot and is on a day by day basis which makes it fun for her! She even stated that she planted a couple hundred perennials/ annuals/ and shrubs in preparation for the opening of the Children’s Garden party in July!

Carly-Jean hopes that by the end of this summer, this experience will have helped her gain more experience in public gardens and learn helpful ways to communicate to the public about gardening in communities!
