Thank You

Organic Supporters and Friends,

Today is my last day working as a Marketing Intern for the Missouri Department of Agriculture. It has been a pleasure to get to know all of you this summer, and my experience with MDA has heightened my love as well as broadened my knowledge of Missouri agriculture.

This summer has been an outstanding one--I got to visit agriculturists across the state, participate in farm tours and other farm events, and help in the creation of the Missouri Guidebook to Organic Certification (which will be out for producers in a few months). I learned more about organic production and the techniques and regulations in raising that throughout this summer than I may have ever learned in my lifetime without the internship experience.

These are just a few of the things I have experienced this summer, and every day with MDA I have learned something new. Thank you so much for contributing to my wonderful summer. This fall I will be continuing my post-secondary education at the University of Missouri as an Agricultural Education major with an emphasis in Leadership and Communications. I will no longer have my Missouri Department of Agriculture email address, so send all questions to However, if I can help you in the future in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me at my school email:

Thanks again and I hope to see you all sometime in the future.
