A Hands-On Learning Experience

University students were instrumental in the initial development of Springfield Community Gardens (SCG). In fact, SCG Board President Maile Auterson helped found our organization after researching the shocking statistics on food insecurity in Springfield for a graduate course on urban planning at Missouri State University (MSU). Today, we remain committed to working with students from area schools.

SCG offers internships that meet associate's degree, college degree, and master's degree requirements for specific programs at these schools:

If you're interested in an internship with SCG but your school isn't listed above, don't worry. We will work with your advisor to ensure we meet your school's internship requirements.
