This spring, Melanya Gonshorowski joined the team of educators at the Food Love Farm.  Melanya brings many years of experience with both farming and educating, including guiding kids’ backpacking and canoe trips and as a counselor at Camp Augusta.  Most recently she has served our community as a midwife with Sierra Homebirth.  Melanya says “I’m excited to have my hands in the dirt and share my love of cooking with Nevada County students!”  Field trips to the farm will begin this April for local students.  Sophie Larsen, Senior Farm Educator and Emily Koller, Farm Director, both entering their third year at the Food Love Farm, are excited to begin this season and to welcome Melanya to the team!  The Food Love team has been busy in the greenhouse this spring, seeding thousands of vegetable, herb, and flower starts. Stop by the farm April 25, May 2, or May 9 for our annual plant sale!
