“Now at 30 years old, I have managed urban land for The Food Project in Lynn and Boston, Mass. I still love working with groups of teenagers and adult volunteers to produce healthy food. I love doing such necessary work in our society: growing food using sustainable methods fills an essential need for people. It's great seeing how much food can be produced—we grow 20,000 pounds of produce for local residents on one acre of land in Lynn, MA. I can feel good about using urban land that would be otherwise unproductive to bring people together and grow vegetables, feed all kinds of folks, and build community.”
