On The Ground Intern
Megan is our first on the ground intern and has come from Fort Collins, Colorado to spend two months with us! Currently, she is studying human development with a dream of one day getting a masters, a counseling license and eventually running a sustainable farm with horticultural therapy, yoga and educational programs. She also spent two years in West Virginia studying horticulture before taking a break from school to travel, volunteer, study yoga and sustainable agriculture. While traveling in India, she acquired 500 hours of yoga teacher training in the Himalayas and in southern India. She has also volunteered on various sustainable farms and took a month-long course in Ecuador to further her knowledge and understanding on the topic.
Currently, Megan is focusing on improving and expanding our garden with organic strategies, composting and adding more variety. She is also facilitating workshops for our Girl Power and women’s empowerment groups. She is especially excited about bringing yoga to the various girl groups, the wildlife and going rafting in the Zambezi river during her stay!
