Quotes from Former Farm Education Interns
“I stayed on with City Growers as an intern for three seasons because it puts food, vegetables, agriculture, and all of these things that many times get a bad reputation into a positive light. I stayed on with City Growers because, like everyone who works here, I think it is so incredibly valuable to allow people, especially kids to be able to connect with nature in a way that makes sense to them: through food! I mean, I can tell you that living in NYC can be overwhelmed by concrete, asphalt, and brick, especially in the summer, and I know I was feeling the relief to get out on the roof everyday, where it was green and breezy. So I know that all of the kids that come up to the roof also have that same awe-factor, not just from the view.”

“Doing something that you are passionate about makes work fun. I looked forward to being at the farm Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Also, when being in front of a group of children, you have a lot of influence in how enthusiastic they are. If you have low energy, they will too. It is really important to make educational opportunities exciting and relatable to children.”
