The Summer Intern
Ya know how sometimes you just need a helping hand?
This summer, we’re getting two.
When our friend Aubrey came to us last winter and asked if she could be our summer intern- we cocked our heads to the side a bit and said, “but we can’t pay you, and we’d make you pull weeds.”
She said as long as she got to play with the animals and could get a mean farmer’s tan she didn’t care.
So we really couldn’t say no.
During the majority of the year Aubrey is out teaching the children, molding the minds of K-8th grade students in Lake Oswego teaching them Spanish. We’re pretty sure that its just an excuse for her to never grow up and she has some very funny stories about things kids say.
This summer Aubrey will be helping us maintain the garden, build our weekly boxes and help with distribution. She’s also volunteered to lead a kids program for the summer, likely turning your weekly box into a Spanish vocabulary lesson.
- In all of her spare time Aubrey and her husband Alex have their own wine label. Alex left it to The Harvest Widows to press off the whites last fall- which means we really got to play with a bunch of grape goo.
- Aubrey also likes to play dress up. Here she’s doing her best interpretation of Moroccan headdress modeling.
- Aubrey’s first encounter with Oprah, not exactly a pig wrangler yet.
- Let’s try that again:
Now get back to work!
