Prescott Farm adds new environmental educator

LACONIA — Andie Hession has recently joined Prescott Fram as the new environmental educator.

Hession started her new role at Prescott Farm this month. She graduated from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., with a B.S. in Public Health, where she became interested in the connections between food, the environment and health. She spent two years as a FoodCorps service member in rural Arkansas, where she managed a school garden and taught food- and garden-based lessons to students of all ages. She has since returned to her native New England to continue working in outdoor education. Andie enjoys hikes with her dog, kayaking, gardening and cooking with the veggies, and is always looking for new ways to engage in New Hampshire’s great outdoors.

“There are a lot of opportunities to explore the outdoors with Prescott Farm!" she said. "I look forward to discovering the fields, forests, and ponds at Prescott Farm with kids, families, and adults, through camps and public programs. The Naturalist in the Classroom program with area schools helps every student, regardless of previous experiences, get outside. It is inspiring to see students make connections between what they learn in their classrooms and what is happening in the world around them, as they build an appreciation for their own communities."
