Andrew Kindelt joined us from Cal Poly this summer at the Dixon location. Working closely with Robert Imbach, Andrew was able to learn more about tomatoes, alfalfa and sunflowers in addition to the processes of the Dixon location. When asked about his experience, Andrew shared, "I would recommend anyone to apply to become an intern at Grow West if they are interested in the agriculture crop industry. The internship does a great job of showing you the day to day life of a PCA out in the field. Every day you are in the field gaining experience." Andrew is looking to graduate with a degree in Agriculture Science with a concentration in crop science and eventually get his PCA license as well. 

Thank you Andrew and good luck this fall at Cal Poly!

Jerry Tapia joined us this summer from CSU Chico. With plans to graduate in Spring 2022 with a Bachelor of Agribusiness and Crop Protection Certification, Jerry shared his experience as a Grow West intern. "During my time at Grow West, I was fortunate to have worked with experienced PCA's that have a good understanding of the crops in the valley. They all influenced me to want to learn more, and grasp a deeper understanding of agriculture." His advice to potential interns would be, "Ask as many questions as possible. Taking notes and pictures of symptoms will help identify problems sooner."

Thank you Jerry for a great summer and good luck this fall at CSU Chico!

This summer, Melchor Alonso, a student at Santa Rosa Junior College, completed an internship on the North Coast. When asked about the most influential person during his internship, he called out Sandy Henson Valera. 

"Every PCA on the North Coast was extremely helpful, but if I had to choose it would be Sandy. She has helped me in every way possible when it comes to becoming a great scout/intern. She has stood by my side and given me an abundance of knowledge in and out of the vineyards. Including finding problems, communicating them with growers, and working to solve them."

Thank you Melchor for a great summer!!
