Logan joined our team in August 2019 as the new VISTA Farm Coordinator. He says, “I knew I wanted to continue on with AmeriCorps service after my first six months serving as logistics coordinator for the Green Iowa AmeriCorps branch helping people in Cedar Rapids make their homes more green through energy efficiency. Once I learned about all the good Feed Iowa First was doing in the community, I met with board member Lynette and the former coordinator August.
“Having just spent all fall giving away free fresh local organic produce to families in need, I have gained a new energy and enthusiasm to grow. After all, seeing the impact of the previous year’s work pay off is quite an inspiration! So over the winter I am spending my time renewing land-use agreements with our businesses and faith-based organizations that grow with us, planning crop rotation and growing techniques, and attending amazing events such as the Iowa Organics Conference, Trees Forever Symposium and Local Food Leaders seminar. Once the snow melts and the ground thaws, I’ll be running all around Cedar Rapids planting seedlings and producing vegetables for 2020.”
