It was only fitting that I snap a photo of Meagan driving by in the TapRoot Van (safely stopped, of course, out the office window!). Meagan does the majority of the CSA deliveries at the farm.
Meagan has worked at TapRoot Farms since May. She helps with making shares, cleaning and organizing the ever-impending mess in our warehouse, and of course delivers most of the shares, meets members, and chats with them about vegetables-- which she notes is her favourite part of the job! I asked Meagan what brought her to TapRoot and she said "I was a member for a year and when I first heard about the farm I wished I could work there. So, of course when I saw a job opening I went for it!"
Meagan loves to eat vegetables, as well as talk about them with members! Her favourites are Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, and Asparagus-- a green, healthy veggie for every season! She also enjoys camping and being in the outdoors, biking, fishing, and solitude. Meagan was born in Victoria, BC but has lived in Nova Scotia since she was 2-- Her father is in the military and was posted here after being on ships out west.
When I asked Meagan what some of the things she has liked seeing at the farm so far she replied, "I thought it was really cool to see how the shares are made-- it goes so fast, we make hundreds of boxes and it always seems to happen quickly." Meagan mentioned that she is still overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of fields we have at the farm: "I don't even think I have a handle on how many and where all of them are!" When asked what she doesn't like, she said: "I don't like having to throw out excess veggies, and when members don't pick up their boxes. It seems like such a waste."
Meagan is the reason your shares make it safely to you, most days of the week. Thanks for sharing more about yourself, Meagan!
