The Edible Landscaping Internship program provides students with hands-on experience in campus gardens by growing fresh produce. We equip interns with all the knowledge they need to run their own garden site and feel confident engaging and educating the public. As part of the Arboretum and Public Garden’s Learning by Leading program, students have the opportunity to step into leadership roles and take ownership of their respective garden sites. We want our students to change how we think about and utilize food, and plant these seeds of thought in the community.
