As someone who's had a complicated relationship with where she wants to be (she grew up in the heart of San Francisco, but spends most of her time on rivers as a river guide/kayaker), she finds the border between Boston's foodshed and the dense population of the city a comforting combination.
Emma first learned of gleaning in an environmental English class that Duck came to visit last fall. Emma asked a lot of questions, which turned into one: "Can I intern for BAG?" It turns out that being bothersome gets you some places.
Emma is proving a very helpful intern thus far, lending a hand in the fields on weekends and doing some research projects, which include farm and agency mapping, as well as a food distribution analysis. She is very excited to be part of the team, and we are so glad to have her!
