Queens Botanical Garden is an urban oasis where people, plants and cultures are
celebrated through inspiring gardens, innovative educational programs
and demonstrations of environmental stewardship.
The Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) is a private non-profit cultural institution located on 39 acres of New York City public land in Flushing, New York. The Garden serves nearly 200,000 visitors each year; a visitor survey reveals that 75% of all visitors speak a language other than English at home. This astounding fact underscores the importance of the Garden’s mission and the challenges and opportunities it faces daily in creating programs, exhibits and landscapes that serve the needs of one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the nation. The Garden has committed itself to addressing the complex and ever changing needs of its diverse community and to being the place where people, plants and cultures meet.
The Education Department of Queens Botanical Garden offers public events, school workshops and teacher training programs throughout the year expressing QBG’s mission of cultural connection to plants and ecological sustainability.
Part Time Instructors are sought for opportunities to teach classes, provide programs and offer tours both on the Garden grounds and off-site. The Instructor will be responsible for all aspects of the program—from preparing materials to teaching the class to breaking down after the class.
