Meet the Interns – Part 1 and how to store those veggies!
We are fortunate enough to have two amazing interns this summer at the Wily Carrot. Marissa came all the way from upstate New York after recently graduating from Marist College. She’ll be working on the farm for two months before heading to graduate school for soil science. She wanted to get hands-on experience on a working (and incredibly awesome) farm to better understand how food is grown before starting grad school. She’s only been here two weeks, but she’s already skied in the La Platas, boated the Dolores and hiked in Canyonlands. She’ll also be running the Mancos half marathon this Saturday, with myself and our other intern Roger.Marissa has been a huge help on the farm and immediately jumped in to help with planting, harvesting, weeding, building irrigation…everything really. Most importantly, she makes a killer quinoa veggie stir-fry.
