Budding Plant Relationships: Fall 2023 Intern Stories

As part of our Fall 2023 Internship Program, each of our interns were paired with a plant that holds particular significance at NTBG. Their task was to delve into and gain insights about their plant through the lens of NTBG’s various gardens, departments, and voices. Each intern crafted a story that showcases their journey with their plant.

We’re excited to present their stories below!
