Summer Internship Description
Vivant Gardening Services, a Chicago-based small business providing garden services to residents, restaurants and community groups around the North Side of Chicago, is offering a Summer Internship for its growing projects. Clients include Fountainhead, Lillstreet Art Center and Montrose Metra Community Gardens and represent a wide variety of spaces including harvest-intensive herb and vegetable gardens, pollinator gardens, green roofs, containers and more. By working with Vivant in these spaces, an intern will gain valuable knowledge and experience in topics such as garden planning, planting, maintenance, harvesting, eco-friendly pest and weed control, proposal and grant writing, community organizing, as well as what it takes to operate a small business.
A Vivant Intern represents the company and is expected to uphold our values of respect and dedication to clients and the environment at all times. This requires punctuality, honesty, cleanliness, and a genuine passion for organic gardening.
