The Polly Hill Arboretum on the island of Martha’s Vineyard is seeking applicants who are students of horticulture or plant science at the college level to participate as horticulture interns. The Arboretum, a Martha’s Vineyard horticultural and botanical landmark, was developed by the legendary horticulturist, Polly Hill (1907-2007). Here in 1958, Polly began an arboretum by sowing a seed, eventually bringing 20 acres under cultivation while preserving 40 additional acres as native woodland.
