freelance happenings

I’m pretty excited about a story assignment I got today from Edible Boston Magazine (“Celebrating the Abundance of Local Foods, Season by Season”).  It’s a feature on a family-owned, local organic farm south of Boston that utilizes solely local high school and college students as labor during the summer.  A NYT article last week details the trend among some college students of using their summers to work on farms, change food policies, and escape the rigors of academia. Take a look if you have a chance.  My article is for the Fall Issue, so I hope to keep you posted on the blog as I visit the farm and do the reporting this summer.

Also, check out this piece I wrote for sojourners’ God’s Politics blog on gardening, posted today.

If anyone knows of additional writing opportunities (journalistic, marketing, Web, print, whatever), feel free to send them my way. (steve [at] thebostonwriter [dot] com)
