“I look at the world and ask, ‘What needs to happen?’ Then I see how my passion can fit those needs.”
Who said that? How do we get them working with our team?
This student position, which was made possible with the generous support of the Sewall Foundation, is designed to further the hunger relief mission of Veggies For All by providing support in the veggie fields and creating more connectivity between the College and community food work. Sarah will also manage some summer greenhouse projects and assist in other food security collaborations we maintain with local partners, such as the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry and Unity Barn Raisers, the administrative home of VFA.
Sarah is a continuous source of positivity and initiative on the worksite. If you’re lucky enough to work with her- you will find yourself laughing a lot and working hard. She is also an independent and dedicated team member who is not afraid to dig into tasks. Her passion for this work is crystal clear!
Her experience includes an AmeriCorps Apprenticeship at The Youth Garden Project in Moab, Utah, an internship with Maine Farmland Trust’s Farm Viability office here in Unity, and volunteer-student greenhouse manager during the last semester.
She works on gardens and other projects at her off-the-grid homestead in Freedom when she’s not doing good work out in the community.
We have a feeling this is going to be a great year…
