Program Manager, Erickson Fields Preserve
“Working with young people, I see the impact of MCHT’s work on a daily basis—when a teenager asks why something grows a certain way, or how a bee finds a flower. My hope is that this engagement with nature is the beginning of a life-long respect for the earth.”
Through MCHT’s Kids Can Grow program, Aaron works with local families to teach gardening and nutritional skills. The Teen Ag Program gets high school students onto conserved lands—planting, growing, and harvesting vegetables for local pantries and restaurants.
