Kenny Shapiro, Summer Intern

Kenny Shapiro is a member of the Class of 2017. He has worked for Sustainable Bowdoin for the past two years. Prior to that, he farmed in rural Vermont and on a hippie commune in northern Washington state. The opportunity to work on the garden has provided the perfect intersection of these two interests, as he has been able to once again pick up gardening, with a focus towards the BOG's role within Bowdoin's greater sustainable efforts.

April Mendez, Summer Intern

April Mendez is a member of the Class of 2018. April was inspired to pursue a summer job in farming by her father, for who many years has grown his own produce back at their home in southern California. She is passionate about sustainable agriculture, supporting local farms, and yielding quality, whole foods. Throughout her summer with Bowdoin's Organic Garden, April hopes to better connect with the food she eats every day as well as better understand the mechanics behind organic farming.
