Today is Angela’s last day at the farm as an Intern. Gosh, we really hate to see her go. Many of you know that this was a year of tremendous growth and transition for the farm. Angela has been the glue that kept it all together. Alot of internships include guidance and daily teachable moments, not hers. Angela learned through “hard knocks” and a ton of hard work. Her dedication was always present no matter what the task. Farming is a constant experiment and Angela learned this first hand.
This year the farm grew by almost double. We added goats and chickens (Angela headed up care and maintenence), put on 2 summer camps and we added Grant park market and ELF CSA shares. She also has given us a ton of ideas on bettering the farm even more.
Angela, thank you so much. You were the rock that kept this farm going this summer Thank you for your hard work, your drive, your humor and your wonderful lunches! (i forgot to mention that she is a killer chef)
Keep listening to you heart, your plants and your land and your farm is gonna rock!
