Our paid horticulture internship program allows students a chance to work in all areas of our company including greenhouse, pot-in-pot production, pest & disease management, irrigation, inventory, shipping, sales, and at our distribution center: Premier Plant Solutions. Students who have declared a major in an Agriculture or Horticulture related program at a 2-4 year college or university with an internship program are eligible for internships at our nursery. Students should be focused on obtaining a career in nursery management, greenhouse management, plant health, landscape horticulture, floriculture, agribusiness, or have a similar career focus.

This is a hands-on learning experience. Interns will be expected to work in all types of weather and be on time to work.
