Planting the seeds for future generations
Each summer Langley Main Street hires two to three college students to plant, weed and water the public gardens in downtown Langley. Often working on the street, these students are also ambassadors for the town answering questions from many visitors. Many bring their own special skills and initiatives. Emily Martin, horticulture major, with support from Main Street and the City, redesigned the library lawn with a drought tolerant landscape, creating a beautiful low impact garden as a lasting gift to the community. Grace Swanson, a communications major, used her writing skills to create a series of blogs highlighting young families and entrepreneurs who have made Langley their place of work and home to encourage young families to come to Langley.
Our interns are great ambassadors for Langley and often bring new ideas and projects.
The intern program gives an opportunity to students to earn money during the summer. Garden expertise is not necessary, but helpful. If you love plants, working with people and being outside, contact us about a summer internship.
