Internships

Spring Meadow offers college student internships in three production departments: propagation, growing, and stock. Interns rotate between these three areas to gain a well-rounded perspective of the full production cycle. Our internship program is designed to give students the opportunity to combine what they've learned in their coursework with practical experience in one of North America's largest woody plant propagation nurseries. Our goal is that a Spring Meadow internship would lead to future employment for the student. Our paid internships typically run from May-August/September. Onsite housing is available for a fee, or we can assist in finding suitable local living arrangements if needed. Students from other countries who can get permission to work in the US are welcome to apply.

Interested candidates should e-mail a cover letter and CV to intern coordinator and stock manager Matt Carlton.
