FARM INTERN
 

I’m Nynne, 31 years old and from Denmark. I have a masters degree in environmental planning and at the moment I’m studying to be a gardener. It’s key to me to farm in a way that harms nature as little as possible and I’m very interested in local food systems. Seeing so many new initiatives with young people choosing to farm sustainably gives me hope for the future. I’m pleased to join the team at Urban Vegetable Project to learn and get inspired.

When I’m not gardening I do knitting, yoga, mediation and beekeeping. In my third year as a beekeeper I’m taking care of six beautiful bee families in my garden.
