Meet the Interns: Nathan Braun

My name is Nathan Braun, and I am the Turf Grass and Irrigation Intern this year at Reiman Gardens. During the school year I am a third generation Iowa Stater from the Twin Cities. I am majoring in Agricultural Business with a minor in Spanish. My past experience with commercial landscape has lead me to a large interest in gardens.

I was honestly very nervous when I took the position because I have had next to no experience working with an underground irrigation system, especially one so large. The first couple of weeks have taken away that nervous feeling. It isn’t as daunting of a task as I had imagined. With that fear gone, I am excited for what the rest of the summer holds!
