The final day of Intern Tom's internship was yesterday. He departed in his Geo Metro early this morning. His immediate future holds a road trip to Tennessee with friends and a few weeks off. Then, for the next year or so, he will be farm manager at Kimberton CSA, a 10-acre biodynamic vegetable garden near Phoenixville, PA.
Here's the link to Kimberton's website if you're interested in learning more about it:
During his time here, Tom spoke of his goal to one day own his own small farm, grow organic vegetables, and use draft horses to accomplish the work. I bet he'll succeed. In fact, he's the recipient of a coveted Farmbedded Endorsement, a very prestigious award in the world of farm blogging. He deserves it. Not only has he already devoted years to learning about organic vegetable production, he's also a natural horseman, a philosopher of sustainability, he plays the guitar, is a good cook, and he can fix your computer, too.
If you own more tillable acres in New Jersey than you need and like the idea of helping out a young farmer trying to make the world a healthier place, you should send your contact information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, at which point I will pass it on to Tom.
