Jeffrey Taylor is originally from Brampton, Ontario. He is pursuing a B.A. in Environmental Studies at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. He was inspired to participate in this program because he feels that “diversity needs to be incorporated into agriculture to help build sustainable farms.” His future goal is to successfully run a CSA farm. Jeffrey thinks, “Food is something that many people take for granted, but CSA farms educate people about the importance of sustainability in agriculture.”
While working at Cedar Meadow Farm (Steve Groff’s family farm), Jeffrey conducted a research project on the diversity of microarthropods in different cover cropping systems.
