We love celebrating our hard working students. As the semester rolls on, we hope to introduce you to as many Howdy! Farm volunteers as we can.
Meet Michael Bunsen,
A sophomore majoring in environmental studies and minoring in horticulture.
Howdy Farm: Why did you choose to volunteer at the Howdy Farm?
Michael: I chose to volunteer at Howdy Farm for a variety of reasons, mainly just because I love to help out in a place the needs it. I really enjoy learning about farming and sustainable agriculture, and getting to meet the people that are involved.
Howdy Farm: What is your opinion on organic produce?
Michael: I want to promote it, just because I'm an advocate for more natural ways of eating. I'm not as much a fan of genetically modified organisms or any synthetics. I try to avoid those as much as possible.
Howdy Farm: Prior to working at Howdy Farm, did you have any experience with growing organic produce?
Michael: I did not. I didn't even know that Howdy Farm was here until late in my freshman year. Olivia Wolford introduced me to the Howdy Farm. We were just conversion one day in class about eating organically and living sustainably.
IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER AT HOWDY FARM:
Join us at the Farm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 5 pm.
We looked forward to having you!
