Annie grew up on a farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where she developed a lasting interest in how plants, animals, and people provide for one another. She received a degree in English from Haverford College, writing her senior thesis on how places impact people’s individual and community identities in post-apartheid South African literature. These interests have taken her into a variety of roles, including founding a community farm in partnership with the Bhutanese refugee community in Philadelphia, researching for an African poetry radio show in Cape Town, and serving as a wilderness guide in Alaska. She received her master’s degree in education from the University of Washington, with a certificate in Education for Environment and Community from IslandWood. She sees Green Plate Special as a unique setting in which young people can learn about interdependency in communities and ecosystems and explore the roles they want to play in them. She hopes to make the garden a space that welcomes, engages, and inspires all youth in this endeavor. In her free time, she loves reading, beekeeping, hiking, and cooking, especially with produce she grew herself!
