I am new to Burlington and I'm looking to kick-start my career in food justice and ecoagricultural advocacy. I studied Social Thought & Political Economy at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with minor in Political Science. I also graduated from the Green String Institute, a three-month training program in natural process agriculture in central California which grows food for Alice Waters' Chez Panisse restaurant in Berklee. My dad is Peter Hirst of New England Biochar, a leading innovator in biochar production systems and a company for which I have worked with seasonally since 2009. Most recently I have been WWOOFing at Hethsoll Icelandics, a small sheep dairy farm in Richmond VT. I am currently looking for administrative, organizing, networking, or otherwise community-related work expanding the positive ecological and social developments which have been occurring in Vermont's food system over the years.
