Summer sees us really getting up and growing! We’re fortunate to have had the MBA and MSM students from Notre Dame’s Mendoza School out to our expansion site the last few weeks. They rocked it with their teamwork and devotion to detail. What progress we made with them volunteering with us! We are also very grateful to have Chandler Nuttal as a Summer Intern with GBG. He’s become a terrific member of our team in just the past few weeks!
To welcome Chandler, we asked him to share a few things about himself so all of our supporters can get to know him better.
Hello, my name is Chandler Nuttal. I am currently a student at Bethel College majoring in Interdisciplinary studies focused on Communication, American Sign Language and Psychology. I spent ten years in the United States Coast Guard and my wife and I are proud parents of three amazing kiddos. My internship will focus upon all aspects of operations here at Green Bridge Growers. I have begun to meet the crew here at Green Bridge Growers and was introduced to the farm’s aquaponics greenhouse by Matt and Chris. There’s a lot to look forward to in the days ahead!
Spring is upon us and we are working, working, working to plant seeds. So far we have planted corn and bush beans in our pasture. There will be a beautiful variety of color when all the beans start producing. We are also preparing to plant edible flowers in our high tunnel (greenhouse with soil). Look for our produce soon!
