National Garden Internship

The Summer 2014 Internship is now closed for applications.

The National Garden Internship was established to help bring the National Garden to life for visitors while cultivating new talent in the field of public horticulture. The 10 week summer position focuses on educational outreach through planning, implementing and managing interpretive materials and programs for the public.

Past interns have had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects from creating brochures on gardening with native plants to developing a cell phone tour of the National Garden and giving public lectures. Interns also help to train volunteers on interpretive materials and assist with the Hands On Plants Science program. 

Meet the National Fund’s 2013 intern, Caroline Rush, and 2013 intern, Kelly Whitson.
