The four interns from Nashoba join the World Farmers staff for the month of July. They are working on a variety of projects to support the farm during the growing season and will continue that support into the school year. They were all chosen for this internship due to their enthusiasm and desire to help others. The interns hope to apply the knowledge and new understanding of the world gained through this opportunity to many endeavors in the future.
