“CISA restored my faith in being able to find a place to work where people have such similar values to me. Thank you everyone at CISA and Professor Greeley for making this internship happen.  It was a priceless learning experience that I will carry with me forever.”
Gary Pillion, Spring 2013

“In my time at CISA, I learned an amazing amount about the local food system itself, agriculture infrastructure, and the communication, marketing, advocacy and public outreach to both farmers and community members that makes their work possible.  I feel better equipped and excited to pursue a career in the non-profit world.”
Anna Luberoff, Summer 2011

CISA’s summer 2016 Interns

She was born and raised in Whately, and is currently seeking a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management. Right now she attends Greenfield Community College and plans on transferring to UMass Amherst in the fall. Having worked at a local farm stand for five years and a local restaurant for over a year, she has a strong passion for the importance of local food and farms.

Although originally from the Boston area, Becca now calls the Valley her home; an attachment that has deepened over the past two summers while working at Many Hands Farm Corps in Amherst. She is currently pursuing a degree in Geography at Vassar College with a correlate in Creative Writing and is excited for the opportunity to work and learn at CISA.
