"Eating and cooking has always been a huge part of my life, and paved the way for me to find work in the food industry and start engaging with the concepts of food justice and sustainable, healthy eating through my work. This position with Poughkeepsie Farm Project gives me an opportunity to continue working in Garden- Based Education and utilize skills I've honed working in administrative roles to support the important programs happening here."
