Environmental Program Assistant at Earthwise Society in Agassiz, BC
For my first summer Co-op term I have the privilege to work with a non-profit organization that focuses on environmental stewardship. As for my position I was responsible for assisting with both farm related and environmental related projects. This includes planting work, trail maintance, power tool usage, irrigation duties, as well as setting up and taking down the farm store. This position has been an amazing opportunity to expand my knowledge on daily farm operations which include planting, growing, and harvesting process on different types of fruits and vegetables, how to use common hand and power tools used for farming, as well as creating a meaningful relationships for tourists visiting the property.
