Jack belongs to the first class of TerraCorps Members to work in Rhode Island. He has written and advocated for the natural world professionally, and done extensive field work, including volunteering on seven organic farms through WWOOF-USA.

With an interdisciplinary BA in English and environmental studies, Jack says, “I have learned how to interact with the natural landscape through the lens of language and communication.”

Most recently, as a regional collaboration coordinator with the Southeastern Massachusetts Pine Barrens Alliance, he was able to write blogs and educate community members about the region’s natural character.

After a year of serving with a land preservation organization, Jack says he’s happy to return to agriculture, and would like to pursue longer-term work in farming or gardening.
