My experience with FoodWaves started as a farm intern in 2013 learning how to be a successful small-scale organic farmer. The knowledge and hand-ons experience they gave me highly contributed to the start of my own farm a year later, Ginger Mountain Farmstead. Although I am no longer operating my farm, I became a board member of FoodWaves in 2018 to stay connected through supporting local food access and food justice.
As a board member of FoodWaves, I help develop the Small-Acreage Market Farm Internship Program (SAMFIP) and serve as a mentor for annual farm interns. I also support the board with project planning for the annual fundraiser and grant processes. FoodWaves is more than just a local farm; it is a family, community, and model for sustainable food practices that I am so proud to be part of.
