A note of thanks

May 4, 2012

Today is my last day at The Minnesota Project. In a little over a week I am heading back to the Pacific Northwest with my partner to do some WWOOFing on a couple farms in Oregon and Washington. I am looking forward to spending the summer learning more about diversified agriculture and getting more hands-on experience with self-sufficiency skills.

Shaun on the Oregon TrailIt’s been a pleasure working here with everyone and an honor to be associated with an organization that has such a strong history in working toward a sustainable Minnesota. I’m inspired by my colleagues and the many volunteers involved in programs like Fruits of the CityConnecting Immigrant Farmers to Sustainable Markets, and the new Garden Gleaning Project. And I am proud of the work that Jake Fischer and I have been able to accomplish on the Farm Energy Efficiency program:

For all of this work, you can read past blog posts right here.

Leaving is always bittersweet. There is the excitement of what lies ahead and the fondness and memory of what has passed.

In closing, I’d like to say thanks for reading about these efforts and for your support for this great organization. To help keep it going strong, I’d encourage you to consider a tax-deductible donation to The Minnesota Project at

Thanks again. Hope to see you around.
