Farm and Garden Seasonal Assistant
Carl Nelson fell in love with the Lewisburg Community Garden in the spring of 2020, a few months after he moved to Central PA for the first time. He believes getting our hands in the soil to grow our own food is one of the most radical and revolutionary things we can do. Carl is always looking for more ways to incorporate justice into the systems of his communities.
From 2020-2021, Carl served as the AmeriCorps Education and Outreach Coordinator at the Lewisburg Community Garden. Carl is now the Farm and Garden Assistant here at the Lewisburg Community Garden and the Bucknell University Farm.
