2017 Interns

The Rutgers Gardens internship program reaches back over 20 years. Since 1994, we have educated 205 students on our grounds. The first year, 3 students worked at the Gardens and learned about garden maintenance. Our program has grown substantially since those days, now averaging around 14 students each year! In addition to the hands-on experience and training they receive in the important aspect of garden maintenance, we have been continually working to enhance the educational components, which included the addition of 3-credit courses in Public Garden Management and The Principles and Practices of Small-Scale Organic Farming, in collaboration with the Department of Landscape Architecture and the Office of Agriculture and Urban Programs. The intern education includes experiences in public garden management, plant breeding, children’s programs and organic farming, as well as a number of educational field trips and networking opportunities that help prepare our students to navigate the future job market. Each year, our hard-working interns prove to be valuable additions to our team. It is always a pleasure to teach and mentor them, and later watch them go on to become colleagues in various fields after graduation.
