The Forest Foundation is a non-profit organization that is passionate about getting college-aged students involved in the non-profit sector. Each summer the Forest Foundation hires around 50 interns and matches them with a non-profit in the greater Boston area and the North Shore. The Forest Foundation gives the non-profit a stipend to pay the intern and the intern then completes a 10 week 40 hour a week internship over the summer and gains areas in many aspects of non-profits.
Alisa, Ali, and I are all excited to be working at Waltham Fields for the Summer. We all have a special project to focus on of the course of the ten weeks. Alisa is doing a research project on vegetable pricing, Ali is working on programming for one of our new educational programs Farm Corps, and I am working on connecting the farm with the community in new ways. Part of my project is working on this blog! I am so excited to help the community, members, parents, shareholders, and everyone stay connected with Waltham Fields through a blog.
