Interns from Argentina
During the summer of 2017, in addition to interns from around the country, the Gardens hosted international interns from Argentina. Three students enrolled in the horticulture program at the University of Rio Negro in Bariloche, Argentina joined us in late June and spent time with us through early September learning propagation and production techniques. The internship provided them with training on techniques that they can apply in their country. This was part of an agreement signed between Denver Botanic Gardens and the University of Rio Negro in 2015.
