This Thursday, The Food Project will be attending the Farm Share Fair! Come by to meet our new CSA Manager, Emily Griffith, taste some delicious honey sticks, and sign up for a 2013 farm share from The Food Project. 

The Farm Share Fair is an annual event that allows consumers to learn how to purchase fresh produce as part of a CSA, or farm share, from farms around Massachusetts. At this year's Farm Share Fair, attendees will have the opportunity to meet more than 20 farmers, learn about their programs, and even sign up for a share. The Farm Share Fair is organized by theMOVE, a local organization that brings youth and adults from Boston's urban areas to farms in the region to learn about where our food comes from.

Hi! My name is Eli Gurvitch. Not to be confused with the other Food Project intern who posted on this bog, Eli Shanks. He's the one who bakes bread and plays harmonica. I'm the one who has an online radio show and plays guitar. I'm 17 from Jamaica Plain and I started working at The Food Project in 2010.

I have learned many things at The Food Project. I've worked on farmland; led workshops on the food system, food justice and social justice; and interacted with community members at the farmers' market and different TFP events. I have also met and learned how to work with lots of great people, both youth and adults, and formed awesome friendships.

The following blog was written by Food Project intern Lucas Munson. Lucas is 17 years old and lives in Arlington, Mass.

Hey, my name is Lucas Munson, and I've been with The Food Project since the summer of 2011. What I have found most fascinating about The Food Project (TFP) is how it creates such a powerful network in such a large area. The Food Project helps each youth, myself included, develop a far greater understanding of what really is Boston. Whether a youth is from Boston, the suburbs, or the North shore, they are required to travel to a different part of the metro area for work. For me, this meant venturing to the heart of Roxbury.
