The internship program welcomes exceptionally qualified students from horticulture, landscape architecture, botany, turfgrass science, education, GIS and other related fields. In working closely with staff, interns gain insight into all levels of garden operations. Interns are provided with strong mentorship and often develop professional relationships that last well beyond their final day in the garden. Since exposure to other professionals and institutions are invaluable learning tools, educational trips and work exchanges with other gardens, nurseries and green organizations are an integral part of the experience.
While many candidates opt for a summer internship, we occasionally accept interns in spring and fall, even some up to a year in duration. Horticulture, plant records, maintenance and education internships are currently offered. On-site housing and a monthly stipend are provided.
