I would just like to say a big thank you to City Green Farms for allowing me to really follow my passion! Getting firsthand experience working in the community made me realize that there is a demand for fresh organic produce and how essential it is to educate consumers about the health benefits of these vegetables.

Each week I felt like a major contributor in the weekly farmer’s markets and I was able to guide our customers into making healthier choices, while educating them about the health benefits of the produce they bought each week. Working for City Green has helped me apply the knowledge I’ve acquired in school, outside the classroom setting.

I want to thank the entire staff at City Green for taking the time to share their expertise and knowledge with me. It was through these times that I felt I was able to learn and grow the most in developing my skills over the course of my internship. The staff was most responsive to my requests and always made me feel part of the group. Thank you so much for opening my eyes to community nutrition. I will forever have this experience to look back on and reflect.
