Sara hails from Northfield, MA where she got her first taste of farming at Northfield Mount Hermon School, mucking stalls, weeding the lavender fields, pressing apple cider, and collecting endless buckets of sap for maple sugaring. Before attending Gettysburg College, she spent a year traveling in South Asia and working in Perryville, Arkansas at the Heifer International Learning Center at Heifer Ranch. In college, she quickly became involved in local food initiatives, volunteering at the Gettysburg College Campus Kitchen, the Adams County Food Policy Council, and the Adams County Farmers Market Association. She also helped to found the Gettysburg College Farmhouse (student theme house) and served as the Center for Public Service (CPS) Sustainability Program Coordinator and student director of the college’s Painted Turtle Farm for two years. Without a doubt, issues of food and sustainability have become a personal and intellectual passion for Sara, tying together many social, political, economic, and environmental realities, both at home and abroad. In May, she will graduate with a BA in Environmental Studies and Globalization Studies, with a minor in Philosophy. She is thrilled to be joining Amazing Heart Farm this season and is eagerly looking forward to meeting everyone and robustly exploring the small farm dream.
