This summer, I am grateful to be employed by the City of Auburn working as a horticulturist. Horticulture is the science and art of cultivating plants. My roles include weeding, removing invasive plants such as English Ivy (pictured below), hedging shrubs, pruning trees, watering flowers, designing garden beds, and planting annuals and perennials. Over the last 7 weeks, I have greatly increased my knowledge of natural systems in cities, specifically parks and gardens.
