This will be Rachel’s second year at Turtle Creek Gardens, focusing her time between the washing shed and the greenhouse area. Last season Rachel worked primarily with the execution of vegetable distribution. This year she will be sowing and tending the greenhouse, as well as maintaining quality control for the vegetables. Although still new to agriculture, she is excited to learn more about organic farm production through a hands-on approach. Rachel recently graduated from Carthage College with a BA in Environmental Science. Her goal is to integrate her background in conservation and ecology with her farming experiences.
Christi edits the Turtle Creek Gardens CSA newsletter, which is published weekly during the Summer CSA season and bi-weekly during the Winter CSA season. She welcomes member submissions and suggestions for newsletter content.
When she's not at her desk writing/editing the TCG news or other small business newsletter, she can be found hiking, cooking, gardening, or making something with yarn.
