Thanks to a generous gift from former University of the Pacific Regent and co-CEO of Whole Foods, Walter Robb, the Pacific Garden Program is able to sponsor two students to take up summer “Grow Biointensive” internships at Ecology Action farms in Northern California. This summer, we have sent up Laura Navarro and Pauline Montemayor, both Environmental Science majors at the University of the Pacific in Stockton. Laura also worked during the past academic year as a Student Garden Coordinator in the Ted & Chris Robb Garden on the Stockton campus.
Laura and Pauline are sending down regular updates on their experiences at Ecology Action, and we will publish their updates on this blog – stay tuned!
