Hello, my name is Chris. I am one of the interns working at Bertrand Farm this summer. I am currently a senior at Indiana University South Bend, with a major in psychology and a minor in sustainability. My future goals are to get my master’s degree in social work at IUSB and to become a farmer at home. I also plan to work with community gardens after my internship.
While I have only been working as an intern for the farm for a short time thus far; I have found myself to be in good company with very like minded people. Some of the goals of Bertrand Farm are to grow food for our present needs, while growing farmers for our future needs. People learn through imitation and example and at Bertrand farm; we grow farmers by actually showing children and adults how to raise food in sustainable ways. The goals of Bertrand Farm are goals that I deeply believe in and value.
