Interns will work independently throughout the summer on a research or extension project with the guidance of their mentor and, at the end of the internship period, present the results at the Undergraduate Research Symposium at the WSU main campus in Pullman, WA.USDA NIFA AFRI REEU Food Safety in Direct to Consumer MarketsBackgroundDirect to consumer markets include restaurants, farmer’s markets, U-picks, and retail institutions (e.g. grocery stores, Co-Ops) where food is delivered directly to consumers. Although there are often food safety regulations in place for many of these types of businesses, the regulations often do not cover activities such as retail holding of produce, and many very small farmers are not covered by new produce safety regulations due to the size of their business. This independent research project will focus on possible routes of microbial contamination of produce at the retail level.DescriptionThe undergraduate research and extension fellow will work directly with the Statewide Food Safety Specialist, Dr. Stephanie Smith, and Postdoctoral Scientist, Dr. Aleksandra Checinska at WSU School of Food Science, in Pullman, WA. The intern will collect microbiological samples from retail sources for testing. Samples will focus on retail bins and shelving that hold produce for sale, and water quality of spray water used to maintain produce freshness. Samples will be processed to determine the overall microbial load and pathogenic microbial load in both the spray water, and retail produce bins and shelving. The intern will also test a variety of produce for the pathogenic microbial load on the produce at the retail level, and identify which microorganisms are present. Additionally, the intern will assist in a variety of other tasks relating to food safety including development of educational programming and extension resources.Fellowship DetailsMentor: Dr. Stephanie SmithLocation: WSU School of Food Science, Pullman, WADates: May 29 – August 3Stipend: $4,500.

Certified organic producers must implement tillage and cultivation practices that maintain or improve the physical, chemical, and biological condition of soil and minimize soil erosion (NOP Rule, §205.203). Methods to quantify and qualify soil quality are integral to assessing changes in management practices that purport to increase soil quality.

WSU Twin Vista Ranch is a 26-acre, certified organic, diversified farm that produces heritage livestock breeds, rare and economically valuable fruit and vegetable crops and germplasm, and honey/beekeeping. Though there is an abundance of research and resources dedicated to conventional and commodity scale production systems in Washington, relatively few resources exist for organic, small-scale agricultural systems.
