From Patricia Collins, Director of Callaway Gardens:
We have two exciting opportunities for students at Callaway Gardens! For over 50 years we have offered a Summer Internship Program. A number of our past participants are now involved in the management of major gardens.
We offer Internships in our Horticulture and Education Departments. Each is an eleven (11) week program from late May through early August offering practical work experience supplemented with fieldtrips and a few classes. The Horticulture program is designed to provide a well-rounded experience throughout the Gardens operations including Horticultural Displays- indoors and in conservatories, The Day Butterfly Center, Fruit and Vegetable Production, Gardens Trails and Greenhouse Production. The Education program is a great experience for students interested in public horticulture, extension service and environmental education. Education interns teach programs in natural history and home horticulture. Both internships are invaluable for futures in Botanical Garden Management, Landscape Design or Environmental Education. Students work 40-hour weeks with some evening and weekend hours required for work and study. We offer an hourly wage with housing available.
