Meet Farmer Lindsay Robbins

Lindsay is a part-time intern at Saul, usually here in the afternoons following a morning of baking cakes downtown in the Northern Liberties. She first learned about the magic of CSAs when she volunteered and shared harvest with students at Hampshire College, a long time running student CSA and farm in beautiful western Massachusetts. She has also worked farms in the Canadian Rockies in British Colombia and various parts of Oregon. After her travels, she decided to bring her experiences back to her hometown of Philadelphia, where she did some small gardening projects before getting involved with the amazing CSA here at Saul. Fascinated with Saul's unique program, Lindsay secretly wishes she could be fourteen again and enroll in classes. Visits to the woods of the Wissahickon are memories she can recall as a child and the opportunity to farm here is a meaningful return. She is looking forward to harvesting her favorite crop, carrots, this summer and hopes to make friends with the coyote that visits us from time to time in the fields.
