Alex is thrilled to be working in the garden on Hurricane Island for the first time this summer! Alex is originally from New Jersey, but moved to Concord, Massachusetts when he was 14. However, his discovered his love for the ocean and the outdoors when visiting his grandmother in Maine during the summer. He just finished his first semester at Colorado College (he started in January) where outside of taking classes, he loves to sing, write, read and help out periodically in the student garden. Alex first visited Hurricane Island while participating in Sustainable Ocean Studies, a marine biology and sustainability program for high school students.
