Cultivating Success at the Smithsonian Gardens
University of Connecticut senior horticulture major Jacob Ricker spent this past summer interning with the Smithsonian Gardens (SG). During his internship, he learned about landscaping work such as weeding, pruning, and watering three different Smithsonian gardens. In the future, Jacob plans to attend graduate school and share his love of plants.
Jacob was recently featured in an article on the University of Connecticut’s website, which you can see here.
