Transfer Student Obtains Internship with Terrain at DelVal

Posted on by Payton Fulton '25, Horticulture, Green Goods and Buying Intern at Terrain at DelVal

Terrain is a nature-inspired lifestyle brand, offering the university and Doylestown community Terrain’s signature retail store, nursery, garden cafe, and private event space. DelVal's partnership with Terrain includes experiential learning opportunities for DelVal students through the university’s award-winning Experience360 program.

My name is Payton Fulton and I am a transfer student from Delaware County Community College coming to DelVal in the fall of 2024 for the horticulture program and the organic farming certificate. My goal is to complete my program by the fall of 2025. Before I got my internship with Terrain at DelVal, I was a nursery associate for Terrain in Devon, Pa. where I handled customer service and answered a lot of plant questions for guests.

My new title at Terrain at DelVal is Green Goods Buying Intern and my role involves writing, editing and updating new and existing plant signage within the internal database. I pursued this internship because I was super interested in learning about the scenes at Terrain, the process of how they buy green goods in different classes, and I’m eager to meet and network with different vendors. I also hope to learn more about the plant nursery aspect in the horticulture field, and understand the process that goes into designing each Terrain location, from the East Coast to the West Coast, to make the stores stand out compared to other businesses in the plant nursery community. My post-graduation goals are to continue my studies at DelVal in the Agribusiness master’s program and perform research on soils and integrated pest management.
