Severe weather cancels.

    Gelene Scarborough

    Gelene Scarborough has been a Wave Hill Gardener for years. For two years prior to joining Wave Hill as a full-time gardener, she was a Wave Hill intern. During her time at Wave Hill, she has cared passionately for nearly every area of the garden. Currently, she is focusing on the Flower Garden, Palm House and propagation greenhouse. When she isn’t caring for Wave Hill’s flowers, herbs, plants and shrubs, she finds joy in painting, an expression of her previous life before gardening.
