Description

This is a work-experience/college credit internship and is unpaid. Please send a cover letter letting us know a little bit about you, as well as how many full weekdays you are available. Also include your possible start and end date.

What We Do
We design and build Outdoor Educational Wonderlands for schools, community centers, special needs organizations, elder care and private and group residences. Wonderlands include: gardens, greenhouses, green roofs & walls, fitness forts, educational playgrounds, chicken coops, observatories and so much more.

Beyond Structures
A traditional build company will leave you with only a structure. To maximize impact we customize thoughtful programs that pair our Wonderland structures with professional development for teachers, staff traning, lesson plans, garden plans, workshops and maintenance.

Education
We use garden-based learning techniques to teach the Common Core standards (STEM, social studies, language, arts) and broader concepts like understanding our food sources, healthy eating, environmental stewardship and preparation for jobs in the new green economy.
