Sarah Hart is a recent graduate of Emory University, where she studied Anthropology and Human Biology. She is passionate about gardening, farming and healthy eating. Sarah’s organizational skills are a huge asset for Georgia Organics, where so many programs and activities occur simultaneously. Though Sarah won’t necessarily get into the field too often, she will be the smiling face that greets you if you come down to our office and the helpful voice on the phone if you call our main line. We are so excited for her to join us, and, of course, we had to ask her the tough questions we pose to all new employees:
What was your previous job? I was a student at Emory University, so I worked part-time in the Anthropology Office as an Office Assistant.
Who/what inspired you to do the work you are doing for Georgia Organics? I like Michael Pollan’s sweet and to-the-point approach at healthy eating. The simple approach is the best approach! However, I would probably say my mom and dad are the ones who inspired me the most. They work hard and they push me to work even harder for what I want to do in life and for what I believe in.
What do you want to accomplish for Georgia’s farmers? I want to be able to help out in any way that I can in order for them to having healthy, thriving farms. Expanding the Georgian Farmer network across multiple states would be nice, too, because a lot of the farms here have great produce and products. Also, because I don’t deal directly with Georgian farmers, I’d love to be able to sit down with them and just talk about their farms and tips on good farming. Farming and gardening are interests of mine, so to be able to talk with someone that does it for a living would be great.
If you became a DJ, what would your DJ name be? DJ Jazzy Jeff…. Oh… is that name already taken? Then probably, DJ XO. Imagine the crowd shouting, “D-J X-O! D-J X-O!” Yeah.. that has a nice ring to it.
