Summer 2022 Internship Experience
This summer I have the opportunity to intern at Boston Microgreens. Located on West Broadway Street in South Boston, the modern urban farm was created in 2018 by Northeastern graduate Oliver Homberg. The company grows a wide variety of 50+ types of microgreens for local restaurants in the city of Boston. Customers are given the opportunity to tailor their orders to the exact size and mix of what they need for their individual menus. In addition to their chef's menu, the company offers a small residential menu which includes their esteemed nutrition mix as well as some of their popular cilantro and basil microgreens. Furthermore, the company prides itself on its use of renewable energy and ability to grow without the use of any pesticides, meaning the microgreens are both figuratively and literally green and clean!
I will be keeping an account of what I do and learn during my time with the company this summer. Each underlined day on the calendars below will take you to a writeup of that day's events. Additionally, some days will have extra bits that fall outside of the two main categories of information that I will be reporting on: growing and business. I aim for this part of my portfolio to both serve as a journal of the work I do as well as a way to visually see the progression of my learning throughout my time with Boston Microgreens this summer.
