Interns will also learn about distribution channels and financials related to food production.
Garden Center Management
These interns will work with our garden center managers, horticultural specialists and garden center team members to learn about plant management, retail sales, and customer support.
These interns will work with someone on our admin team on a project related to organizational sustainability.

The options are limitless.
At Greensgrow Interns can be paid directly from their schools (if they are doing an internship through their school). If someone wants to apply to be an intern but is not affiliated with a school Greensgrow offers 4 paid internships.
