“Conservancy Launches Community Horticulture Fellowship Program”

The Charleston Parks Conservancy has launched an initiative to recruit and train a new generation of horticulture professionals from traditionally underrepresented communities. The Conservancy is kicking off a $2.5 million campaign to fund the first five years of the Community Horticulture Fellowship Program. Bank of America is getting the program off the ground with a donation of $150,000 over three years.

Annually, the Conservancy will recruit a class of six fellows for an immersive year of professional development and on-the-job training in parks, gardens, and public spaces in South Carolina. The Conservancy also will work to place the fellows in management-track positions at park management agencies, botanical gardens, horticulture companies, municipalities, businesses and institutions.
