What did you do as an intern at this organization?
I researched urban agriculture options that could be implemented in Grove Hall, as well as their pros and cons and varying case studies, and put my research into a powerpoint presentation for my supervisor to present to urban planners, and a guidebook for the community and urban planners to read.

What did you enjoy most about your internship?
