Si Se Puede
Snow on the first Monday of spring in 2016? Goodness gracious, doesn’t the weather know how busy we are here at Groundwork Lawrence.
This spring, we are so excited to have a variety of FREE classes for the public to take! We just had an incredibly popular cooking class where we invited budding chefs to share, learn, and create something marvelous! (Next one is on April 16- paella!)
Today we talked about the importance of interviews and resumes. The view was amazing. -Francis (Green Team Member)
I’m looking at a vegetable stock that may smell, taste and cook like it came from my mother’s kitchen, but it certainly doesn’t look like it did. It’s purple.
Let’s back up. There I am, a little into my eighth week of service at Groundwork Lawrence, when Maria Natera, our Healthy Living Programs Manager, reminded me that Farmer Dave had brought our first CSA share, the drop-off conveniently located downstairs.
I had heard about CSA programs before, and given that I’m a somewhat recent college grad whose interest in food has only recently upgraded past ramen and Doritos, I signed up because a. fresh food is allegedly good for you, b. my mother made sure I knew how to chop vegetables and c. GWL pays for my share as a benefit for my service.
I took over managing the Green Team in October 2015, and I’ve had an amazing time. Every week we explore new and diverse topics in environmental science, food justice, and community engagement. We’ve gone rock climbing, followed the events of COP21, played team building games at a local park, attended farming conferences, and developed this blog too! I’m excited for what this year has to bring.
Groundwork Lawrence (GWL) is seeking a Green Team Grower to develop and maintain our half acre farm in Lawrence, MA. In addition to farming, the Grower is responsible for supervising and creating youth development opportunities for our Green Team members. Full Position Description
