In an effort to offer access to resources and information, as well as keep students informed about each other, La Flog is requesting submission of 100+ word descriptions of your summer internships. Please send them to sjfredericks at wisc dot edu
For the next year I will be interning with the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection’s Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin program. One of my primary duties will be evaluating and administering the Producers First program that provides small grants to Wisconsin food producers. The program just finished its pilot program and there is plenty of room for change. I’m also in charge of organizing workshops around Wisconsin that provide farmers with the tools needed to take advantage of local and regional markets. So far the work has been meaningful and fun, and hopefully it stays that way.
Kristina Krull also works with the EDGE Project.
