The undergrad interns at Field and Fork, Mia and Ethan, love interacting with plants, produce and harvest. They learn so much about the farm and even participate in lead volunteer work. They have the opportunity to meet and get to know many different people from around the community.
Students and those in the community are encouraged to volunteer and participate in Field & Fork. The farm is always open to taking volunteers, as it is a public facility. Volunteers do not need any prior agricultural background or experiences as this is a learning opportunity and a way to give back to the community. It stays pretty busy year-round as classes and faculty come out to see what’s happening.
One of Mia’s favorite times on the farm is when the baby gators come out to explore. She gets to show the children around and educate them about produce and harvesting.
