At the fair, they visited workshops on everything from how to responsibly consume wind energy to how to grow mushrooms in your backyard. A few of the interns also brought home starters for kombucha and yoghurt, which two of the presenters were giving away to people at their workshops.
After rocking out to the reggae band that played that night, the interns loaded up their tents, sleeping bags and camping gear into the van and drove 12 hours back to Maysville, Mo.
Last week at the farm
While most interns were away, Brenna Fitzpatrick, Danny Kirk and Gabriel Elkind finsihed installing side panels on one of the Solar Cabins. On top of beautifying the farm, Brenna and Gabriel also built a tool for screen-printing.
