For Business

At first glance the Petal Project criteria may seem overwhelming and burdensome for an already busy business. If this is the case you may want to consider enlisting the help of an intern. The intern could solely focus on executing your Petal Project plan and would not be taxing on your budget. If you decide that hiring an intern would be conducive to accomplishing your Petal Project goals then you are responsible for finding and hiring a person, however we will keep an updated list of interested students to help with the process. Once you have hired someone a representative from Petal Project would be happy to educate them about the program and provide any other needed training to ensure he/she is successful at helping your business become certified.

For Students

Are you passionate about protecting the environment? Are you looking for work experience? The Petal Project is a cutting edge program designed to help businesses become more sustainable. Businesses working through the Petal Project criteria may be in need of an intern.  If you are interested in helping them with this process please contact Holly McPherson at 563-556-4166. A Petal Project representative would be happy to explain the program to you in more detail and answer any questions you may have. If after this meeting you are interested in becoming an intern we will add your name to a list that will be provided to Petal Project businesses.
