For those of you I haven’t yet met, my name is Kathleen and I am returning for my second semester as an intern for the wonderful Seacoast Eat Local. During the spring semester of 2016, I focused on working at the Winter Farmer’s Market, writing recipes using all local ingredients while staying within a given budget and researching business ideas for the Mobile Farmer’s Market.
Over the summer I worked full time at the Black Trumpet Bistro in Portsmouth, NH, where the Chef, Evan Mallett, strives to pull as much local and sustainable product in as possible. I also tended my own garden, consisting of mainly heirloom tomato plants that my dog, Miss Charley, loved to snack on.
This is my final semester at UNH as I wrap up my degree in Nutrition and Wellness and oh how the time has flown by! Working with SEL last semester really provided a deeper insight of community nutrition outside of the classroom and I am so thankful to be welcomed back and excited to dive into new projects.
I hope to see you all at the Winter Markets!
