Brian Robbins is an intern at Fiddlehead Farm in Corbett, Oregon through Rogue Farm Corps. He is thrilled to have the opportunity to train on a diversified, organic mixed veggie farm while concurrently participating in sustainable agriculture seminar classes to bolster his experiential learning. Before starting his term with Rogue Farm Corps, Robbins worked as a farm-based educator at Slide Ranch, an organic farm and nature preserve in Muir Beach, California. His favorite times on the farm are when he is using the wheel hoe, harvesting garlic, or talking about how magical Fiddlehead Farm is with customers at farmers' markets in Portland, Oregon. Robbins feels grateful for the amazing small-scale agriculture community that is thriving in the Pacific Northwest and is always excited to jump in the river after a long day of harvesting.

Congratulations Brian!
