Hello everyone! My name is Rowan Sprague, and I am from Richmond, Virginia. I am a third year Civil and Environmental Engineering major and this is my third year at the IRC as well. As Sustainable Food Coordinator, I am planning lots of workshops to promote local food and farming awareness, and I am organizing field trips to the Farmersí Market and farms in this area. This past summer I interned at Morven Farm (not too far from here), and I enjoyed every single minute of it! When I am not doing schoolwork or farming, I love to walk or hike (especially in the rain), catch falling leaves, make color-coded spreadsheets, and canoe. I am so excited to get to know everyone, and please stop by if you have any fun food ideas or just want to chat (Lewis 206)!
