Summer Horticulture Internships

The mission of Denver Botanic Gardens is to connect people with plants, especially plants from the Rocky Mountain Region and similar regions around the world, providing delight and enlightenment to everyone. Internships at Denver Botanic Gardens provide students with hands-on experience working alongside world renowned researchers and horticulturists in a public garden.

At our York Street location, we have more than 50 gardens with 14,000 taxa represented on our relatively small 25-acre growing space. Interns participate in field trips exploring Colorado horticulture and the diverse native ecosystems of the Rocky Mountain region. Additionally, interns are offered professional development opportunities through seminars and conferences, staff-led workshops and industry networking.

This year we are offering four paid, full-time summer internships, 10 weeks in length within the Horticulture Department in the following areas:

  • Bonsai Collection Management and Curation
  • Plant Records Curation and Mapping
  • Urban Agriculture and Rooftop Growing
  • Therapeutic Horticulture
