A dream come true means a month of goodbyes for Door County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator Annie Deutsch. After four years on the job, Deutsch recently accepted an internship with the Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization based in Fort Myers, Fla. ECHO is a faith-based agricultural support agency working on ways to reduce hunger and improve the lives of small-scale farmers worldwide. Deutsch’s interest in the area of study began eight years ago while working at her church’s garden. Now she cannot believe it is all happening.
Deutsch will remain with Door County UW-Extension until December 20th before heading to Florida for the 14-month internship. She says even though her future job could send her around the world, she will still visit the area to see family and friends.
