Amanda joined the Liberty Prairie Foundation in 2015 as a Prairie Farm Corps crew leader and is now a Production Specialist and Farm Educator. She graduated from Northern Michigan University where she obtained a Bachelors in Environmental Studies and Sustainability with a minor in Biology. After graduating college, she traveled for a short period to Sweden and California. Her interest in local food was peaked while visiting Sweden, where locally grown food is readily available.
Amanda is very excited to continue with the Prairie Farm Corps, helping to raise awareness about where food comes from. She is looking forward to seeing the farm season from start to finish with the accumulated knowledge of a full season under her belt. Amanda is currently pursuing her certificate in Sustainable Agriculture from the College of Lake County. She is striving towards eventually operating her own farm business.
Amanda works for the Liberty Prairie Foundation in a part-time capacity. She can be reached at amanda(at)libertyprairie.org. Her office is located in the Yellow Farmhouse.
