Though it has been eight years since Nolan Majka had his first job on the Binghamton Urban Farm, Nolan remembers his time with the Grow Binghamton Youth Program as a very important experience for him. Not only did Nolan get to learn about farming with VINES in 2012, he also made lasting friendships and learned new ways of looking at the world. “I became aware of my carbon footprint,” says Nolan, “It took time but now I’m more conscious of what I eat and the impact it has on the broader world.”
Read more about what made Nolan apply for the Grow Binghamton program, what he gained from his experience and how he stays connected to VINES on our website.
