Callaway Gardens Internships
Education Internship Callaway Gardens:
An internship in Callaway Gardens’ Education Department is a great career builder for students interested in careers in Environmental Education or Public Horticulture. Our interns assist and conduct educational programs in home horticulture and natural history for adults and
families. Topics may include insects, snakes and birds, as well as herb gardening, garden design, butterfly gardening and flower arranging. Interns also conduct children’s programs and art projects addressing natural history and gardening; respond to gardening and natural
history questions in person, by telephone and through written correspondence; and assist in leading walks and bicycle tours along Callaway Gardens' scenic trails.
Horticulture Internship Callaway Gardens:
The horticulture internship is an inclusive program that offers a look at many aspects of public gardens. All of our horticulture interns get hands-on experience as they rotate through a variety of areas including trails, horticulture production, fruit and vegetable production, landscape
maintenance, conservatory horticulture and butterfly gardening. Over the course of the internship, interns may assist with an array of management duties including planting, watering, weeding, flora identification and inventory. As the Summer progresses, interns may have the opportunity to revisit a work area of particular interest.
