In this program, interns learn a variety of horticultural, project management and outreach skills as they maintain community-based edible garden projects on campus. Working as a team, interns collaborate and take on leadership roles to see their projects through.
Weekly meetings and workshops are aimed at providing training and hands-on experience in ecological horticulture and leadership development. Training will include topics such as food justice, composting, propagation, planting and transplanting, garden design, strengths development and community outreach. Interns will also be responsible for independently managing a portion of their time each week developing and implementing design recommendations and outreach events for their particular project sites.
