Hi, my name is Michael Geddes. At Stony Brook University this past fall, I majored in Sustainability Studies and minored in Environmental Design, Policy, and Planning. While I was there, I helped to run and maintain a 2200 sq. ft. rooftop farm located atop the university hospital. The best part about working there was knowing that our freshly farmed produce would go directly downstairs to the kitchen, where it would be prepared for recovering patients. With this newfound passion for sustainable agriculture, I helped to organize and facilitate various Food Day events for the campus community, including a screening of the movie FRESH. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after these college experiences but the SCA seemed like a natural fit. The New Hampshire Corps has been a blast thus far, and we haven’t even started teaching yet. I can’t wait to see what surprises lie ahead.
