Sponsor a Garden Intern
The Bidwell House Museum offers a Garden Internship opportunity to two students passionate about horticulture and native plant gardening. The Garden interns learn and gain hands-on experience from the museum’s gardener, Ruth Green. Interns and Ruth work together on the museum’s flower and vegetable gardens throughout the summer. Garden interns receive payment for this summer-long internship.
During the summer the Garden Internship allows two students to gain valuable skills in horticulture. The two interns work on many different types of gardens that are located on the museum’s grounds including; pollinator garden, native plant garden, heritage vegetable garden, and flower gardens. The interns learn valuable skills in plant conservation, garden design, maintenance, and botany. The Garden interns work 6 hours a week throughout the summer and receive payment for their hard work. Donations will help the museum continue offering the Garden Internship.
