Monica Hanson, 2015 Garden Intern

Hello! My name is Monica and I feel fortunate to have MFAI close to home! I am from Waukesha and attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where as a returning adult-student, I am pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Conservation and Environmental Science. As an Intern this summer I look forward to expanding my knowledge on sustainable agriculture and growing nutritious food in an earth-friendly way to support the farmer while bringing healthy food the consumers. I was raised on a dairy farm in Minnesota and that experience has prompted me to expand my knowledge on best practices for growing, selling and promoting community supported agriculture.
