She will present about her experiences in Kauai, Hawaii where she volunteered on a farm for four months. This wpresentation is free and open to the public. Following the presentation refreshments will be served.

Rothenberg grew up in the suburbs of northern New Jersey and graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S. in Natural Resource Management. Following graduation, she learned about WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) Organization and decided to volunteer on a farm located in Kauai, Hawaii. Rothenberg felt a burning desire to escape the life she knew so well and put herself in the way of beauty and the unknown. Naturally, she found herself in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Rothenberg spent four months living and working off the land. She explored her inner self along with the natural resource amenities so readily accessible. Rothenberg will recount her days spent in the Hawaiian Islands and will share the spirit of Aloha and personal experiences of life in Hawaii.
