Rose is serving as one of the 2018 summer interns as Grow Food Northampton. Rose is currently enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. As a Northampton local, she has grown up attending farmers’ markets and has had CSA shares with nearby farms. She is intrigued by the various interactions local food has with health and the community. In 2016, she lived on a farm for the summer, where she completed a permaculture design certification. Her passions for food justice and food access have led her to Grow Food Northampton, where she hopes to make a difference in the community that raised her. This summer Rose will be working in the Giving Garden and Community Garden.
