With his brand-spanking-new Bachelor of Arts in Engineering & Bachelor of Science in Geology degree from Lafayette College, Kevin Jackson is proving to be a great fit for our Processing Crew. He is quickly learning the ins and outs of the packing shed, from systems to quality control, and does a great job helping us all have just a little more fun during these long days.
We met Kevin via Skype back in May, where he was living in Easton, Pennsylvania and heading into finals. The timing wasn’t ideal –he wasn’t able to start until a month after our planned timeline—but we could tell that Kevin would be worth the wait.
Kevin is a dedicated environmentalist,, with experience in sea turtle conservation, agriculture and horticulture-based curriculum development. He even implemented a solar-powered wash station at Lafayette College’s organic farm!
After accepting the Processing Crew position, Kevin buckled down to finish up his school work and graduate! He then drove across the country in just under a week to make it to Oxbow. We are thrilled that Kevin wanted to move to the Pacific Northwest to live near his sister and that he landed here with us. He will carefully pack thousands of CSA shares this season with all of you members in mind!
We’re capturing interesting moments this season and sharing them here to help you learn where your food comes from. Follow Story of a Season on our blog or on Instagram with #storyofaseason.
