Lauren is extremely excited for another season at the PFP and looks forward to taking on the responsibilities of the Crew Leader position. She first got involved with farming through helping start a garden at Williams College and working on a nearby vegetable farm during the summers. After apprenticing for two seasons at Hawthorne Valley Farm in Ghent, NY and another at Crystal Spring Farm in Brunswick, Maine she returned to the Hudson Valley as a farm apprentice for the 2015 season at PFP. Lauren especially enjoyed organizing the weekly Food Share donations and getting to meet and work with so many wonderful members of the farm community at distribution and during work share hours. When not out in the field, she loves contra dancing, fiddling, hiking, and reading.
