Gloria’s role at Nezinscot Farm has been to educate all those that visit the importance of understanding and learning where and how food is produced. Offering opportunities for learning the skills necessary to be able to live a more sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle is accomplished through her internship programs and extensive workshops.
