The summer internship program is an important and proud tradition at Rutgers Gardens, extending back more than 20 years. Serving a vital role in keeping the gardens well-manicured and running smoothly, the program has expanded over the years to encompass so much more. Our internship opportunities cover a wide range of experiences, from developing understanding of how a public garden serves the community, to learning various horticultural techniques, to teaching children about the environment and plant-people interactions. Our academic 14-week Public Garden Management Program, Youth Program, and Student Farm Program are all paid positions and are each accompanied by a required 3-credit course.
