After completing a farm internship last year, Solome Gibson is rejoining The Talking Farm to complete an educational internship assisting Jennifer Satut, the Director of Education and Programming. Solome will guide volunteer groups, teach classes, and lead our open volunteer hours (Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 2:30-6:30pm). Solome is a sophomore and environmental science major at Oakton Community College and a second-generation American of Jamaican descent. Solome lives in Evanston. She plans to use her environmental science degree to pursue her passion for urban ecology, soil sustainability, water sustainability, traveling to study different environments and provide clean water infrastructure internationally. Miss Gibson is a graduate of Evanston Township High School (2018). Solome decided to take a gap year to discover her interest in the environment. During her gap year, she completed two eco-internships; Sacred Keepers Monarch Ecology internship in Bronzeville and the Nature Conservancy – Imani Green Health Advocates and UIC in the Pullman, Grand Crossing, and Near West Side communities. When not pursuing her interests in planet restoration, Solome enjoys dancing, yoga, long walks, reading, journaling, and traveling.
