Internship Program

The NSA internship program provides students entering horticulture-related fields with the experience they need to succeed.

It is a rare opportunity for a student to be able to create a landscape design and watch it come to fruition in the real world.

We give students a chance to participate in all stages of plant propagation, from seed collection to the final sale to the customer.

This training is invaluable to our interns after they go out into their post-college jobs.

For the future of horticulture, please consider donating today.

Greenhouse Renovation Fund

Each year, finding enough greenhouse space to accommodate the ever-growing array of plants the NSA offers becomes a bit more difficult.

As a result, we are raising funds to renovate one of our greenhouses.

Its small size and stature make it less than ideal for our customers. Its lack of protection from the elements and climate control means that we are unable to propagate plants in the space during the early months of the year when most of our propagation work takes place.

Please make a special gift to the NSA greenhouse renovation project to ensure the productivity of the NSA horticulture program.
