New Summer Intern at The Farm!

Hi everyone my name is Jaz! I’m The Farm’s new intern! Just so you know a little about me, I’m an undergrad student at the University of Michigan studying environmental science with a focus in food sustainability. I love to be outside, cook, and make art. I’m from South Jersey and this is my first summer in Ann Arbor, so I’m very excited to explore Michigan’s beautiful outdoors in the warmth and sunshine. I’m from the beach, so I’m in constant search of coastlines and seafood. If you have any nature destinations, particularly beaches, or tasty, local seafood restaurants that you can recommend please let me know!

I will be here all summer, so feel free to stop by any day to say hi! I would love to get to know everyone!
