New Entry’s staff often say that we all wear more than one hat. When we had a greenhouse propagation field training – our first field training of the year – scheduled to happen when there would be no Technical Assistance Coordinator around to run it, Becca Weaver stepped up, although it fell well outside of the job description for a Farmland Matching Coordinator. With a little bit of coaching from outgoing TA Coordinator Ethan Grundberg (now farm manager at Allandale Farm), as expected, she nailed it.
Now that our new TA Coordinator, Matt Kochka, has started, he’ll be running the rest of the season’s field trainings. Matt comes to us from Farm Aid, and before that, ReVision Urban Farm in Boston, where he was the farm manager. He knows his stuff.
The next field training is Irrigation and Water, on May 3, 5-7pm – as always, in Dracut, Mass. For more information, contact Matt at 978-654-6745 or MKochka@comteam.org.
Here are a few more pictures of the greenhouse workshop. (The discerning eye will notice our new soil blocker in action!)
