The beginning of June is always an exciting time here at the farm as our newest crop of interns arrive for the summer. Some of these students may have ended classes one day and the very next day find themselves here at the farm. That’s the type of commitment and drive that these students apply to spending their time here learning while they help us drive our mission forward. Over the summer they will not only be able to dabble in their specific area of interest on our farms but they will also have the opportunity to learn from our staff, partner agencies and many of our regular volunteer visitors. Our hope is that they will leave us with a much more thorough understanding of our work and a vision of how they will apply that to their future.
This year’s group comes to us from as close as Clark University and the College of the Holy Cross right here in Worcester. Also represented this year are Middlebury College, University of Virginia, University of Vermont and Rhode Island School of Design. Ranging from rising sophomores to recent college graduates we are really proud that this group of students chose to spend their summer with us. After two weeks here on the farm this team has already seen quite a bit of action and met many of our diverse volunteer group. If you are on the farm please say hello to Haley, Amy, Sarah, Scott, Sara, Allyson and Steven and help us welcome them to the Community Harvest Project Team!
