As an intern at Solidarity Farm, I’ve been able to turn my passion for healthy food into tangible outcomes. Our small farm feeds hundreds of families each week and hosts educational tours for people of all ages. We show people how to grow beyond organic produce, pasture animals, and work in a cooperative model.

I would like to help expand the number of people who are able to share this experience by creating additional housing for youth to stay at the farm and volunteer for month long intervals. I plan to install a small bunk house at the farm that will host up to 20 young people per year over the next few years. I think this effort will not only help Solidarity Farm achieve it’s environmental and social mission but also introduce young people to the importance of sustainable farming.
