About the Wylde Center
The Wylde Center connects students of all ages to their environment, health, and community as
they dig into our programs focused on urban agriculture, health and nutrition, and
environmental awareness. As students explore our four urban greenspaces through our handson Education Program, they not only learn the science of how the world works - they also learn
how to care for it through stewardship, agriculture, and personal wellness, while also learning
teamwork and responsibility. Public education classes and outreach complement these K-12
programs, giving the whole community the opportunity to learn and grow in our gardens.
About the Internship
The Garden Intern will work closely with the Site Manager to maintain and beautify the garden.
Tasks include, but are not limited to, weeding, pruning, composting, mulching, picking up trash
in and around the garden, feeding the chickens, cleaning the coop, etc. The garden will also be
renovated in the fall/winter. The Garden Intern will help with preparations for the renovation

small trees and shrubs, ornamentals, and a butterfly garden.
