Week 5 in Region 4

Hello from Region 4! 

Our team was reunited this week as our teammate Rebecca came back from Europe, we’re so happy she’s back! 

We started off our week by going to Osage and  meeting with Darla from Mitchell County where we caught her up on our projects and from there we met with Cindy about our overall reports. That was a big help!

On Tuesday we worked hard throughout the day on our projects and then traveled to Hampton to meet with the vendors of the Hampton Farmers market in the evening. We were able to sit in their monthly vendors meeting where we were able to learn more about what they are envisioning for their social media platform. 

The interns filming for the video

Wednesday was a full day for us in one of the research farms. One of our projects for this summer consists of creating a video for the Northeast Research and Demonstration Farm in Nashua, Iowa, so we spent the day there while they had their field day. We were able to tour the farm and  learn a lot about some really cool stuff not only from the specialists that presented but from others that we interviewed! We also got some nice footage and pictures for the video, we’re excited to be able to start putting it together within the next weeks!

The interns at Thursdays at Main

Thursday was another busy day for us. We started off the day by meeting with La Luz about their handbook for their community garden where we were able to discuss what the handbook would entail and receive any feedback of what else we could include. In the afternoon we went to Clear Lake to meet with the  Central Garden’s board of directors about their handbook. We showed them the progress we have made on their handbook and they were quite impressed with the work! We stayed in Clear Lake for the afternoon where we worked from a coffee shop, explored the lake and went to an intern event hosted there. Afterwards us interns went to explore Thursdays on Main in Clear lake where we found some cute things to purchase!

Friday was our least busy day, we had our weekly intern meeting where we caught each other up on what we have done throughout the week and made our agenda for this week. 

We look forward to catching you up with our adventures from this upcoming week!
