Educational Garden Intern

The Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Craft
Rancho Cucamonga

The Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts is seeking an intern to help develop a 30-minute garden tour for elementary and high school students.

The garden was developed to complement the museum, home, and Sam's shops and demonstrate how a garden can reflect native Californian and other Mediterranean plants. It is designed in harmony with the Southern California climate and respectful of California's limited water supply while showing various plants and garden styles. The Foundation occupies almost 6 Acres at approximately 2400 feet in the Alta Loma region of Rancho Cucamonga.

The garden was constructed with traditional regional elements through a wide variety of long-lived planting strategies that require far less watering and relatively low maintenance than are currently typical for the region. Special attention is paid to plants that attract beneficial birds, insects, and wildlife and it is a Certified Wildlife Habitat. The garden has been designed to lead the visitor through many little discoveries. Bends in the path disclose varied vistas, and growth over the path encourages a pause to notice plantings. Each region opens a different approach to native and Mediterranean gardening. The gardens have eight distinct areas or zones. Each area presents a different theme designed to take advantage of that specific location on the site.
