We're starting a little blog series to showcase our wonderful apprentices here at Swallowtail Farm. If you haven't had the pleasure to meet one of our fine 2016 apprentices, this will give you a quick glimpse at who these people are. First up, our one and only Emily Sylvestre. Make sure to say Hi to her when you see her at market.
1. Where are you from?
2. What are you most looking forward to as an apprentice at SF?
I am most looking forward to working with the bees, growing vegetables and flowers, and being a part of this amazing community of neat and kind people.
3. If you could cross-breed two plants on the farm to make a dream food, what would they be?
If we could grow sunflowers that tasted like blueberries, I think that would be my ideal plant.
4. Tell us something funny or unique about you?
I have an unfounded fear of buoys. When they cross my path while swimming I leave a wide berth.
