Gretchen Seigworth who works with Cornell Cooperative Extension's Vegetable Program, NY will be displaying her newly designed iPiPE Poster at the Cornell Vegetable Program's field days in the coming months and at the New York State's Agriculture Expo on January 17-19, 2017.
Hi all! My name is Gretchen Seigworth and I am working with Cornell Cooperative Extension's Vegetable Program within the CCE Erie County office in East Aurora, New York. Under the Direction of Dr. Darcy Telenko, another intern, Jodi Callwood, and I will be scouting farms in Erie, Niagara,Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegheny, and Genesee counties.
A little bit about myself:
I am currently a junior pursuing a B.S. in Agribusiness Management at Penn State. My minors are in Civic and Community Engagement as well as International Agriculture. I grew up on a 300-acre vegetable farm near Cook's Forest, PA where I cultivated a strong passion for all things Ag from a very early age. At Penn State, I serve as a Soil Nutrient Manager with PSU's Sustainable Student Farm Club. I am also a research assistant on a variety of projects, from middle income wage decline in Pennsylvania to invasive species/pests control in Australia, with Dr. Ted Alter, Professor of Agricultural, Environmental, and Regional Economics at Penn State. In addition to the iPiPE internship, I will also be working with Burley Berries in Warsaw, PA (look them up on Facebook if you get the chance!). I love to travel and I live for adventures!
I look forward to all the learning opportunities I will have during my internship!
The third iPiPE Participant Mixer (iPMx) will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday January 31 and February 1, 2017 in Raleigh NC. The venue and hotel will be the NCSU Alumni Center and Homewood Suites, same as last year.
The call will be distributed through the regional IPM Centers to Extension professionals and is available here. Proposals will be 1-2 pages in length and due by April 29, 2016.
