Summer internships go organic

Happy Memorial Day, summer's officially here! In the spirit of all those summer internships that are about to commence this week for countless college kids, I thought this post was quite fitting...and reflective of both our economic times and of the growing focus around this country's food systems. A new call to arms for the next generation? Check out this article describing the alternative internship route many students are taking this summer, opting for hard-labor and crack-of-dawn wake-up calls on an organic farm rather than corporate world coffee-runs and endless hours of filing and faxing. Food policy, Michael Pollan and farming is the new college vibe for many this summer.
