Meet Your Community Gardens Intern!
I'm Jensen, and I am the Community Gardens Intern this season. I'm very excited to be a part of this program and Garden City Harvest.
I grew up in Southern Illinois, and I am a fairly new resident of Montana. I moved to Missoula last May after completing a three month Americorps program in Lakeside. Although I haven't quite yet embraced the long, cold winters, I absolutely love Missoula, the community, and the mountains. I've always had a strong passion for the outdoors and aim to experience nature in any way that I can.
Last season I thoroughly enjoyed unwinding after work by volunteering at River Road Farm. I loved digging in the dirt and working hard for my veggies. It is very empowering to be able to provide food for yourself with your own hands. Learning about plants and seeing first hand the abundance nature provides sparked a desire for me to continue to deepen my knowledge of plants and food.
I'm excited to see what this gardening season has to offer and looking forward to meeting all of you!
