Internship Program

“I got hands-on non-profit work experience, which is extremely helpful for my future career. I learned more than I could have ever asked for, and I got to take on a lot of different roles, including farmer, educator, and data collector. I also learned a lot about leadership (which was the hardest learning curve for me), and working with kids opened new doors for my future. This internship was life-changing and I cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity to learn so many things.”- Valerie Gooch, 2017 Food Project Intern

“I would recommend this internship to anyone! I have truly valued every experience and opportunity here. This internship has been a career changer for me, and it has opened up so many doors. I think for anyone who is passionate about gardening and the outdoors, being a part of such an incredible organization is everything you could ever hope for. I think what separates a Growing Gardens internship from any other internship is how integral the interns are to the work flow. ” - Kennedy Walker, 2017 Marketing & Outreach Intern
