Megan’s interests in food and agriculture began at a young age. Food access became an important issue to her as a teen, when she worked as a cashier at the local supermarket and as a volunteer with her town’s farmers market. Since then, she has pursued various experiences to enrich her understanding of national and global food systems. Receiving a Bachelors in Chemical Ecology and Visual Arts from Marlboro College (’16), her work as a student centered around agroecology and plant domestication.
Megan remains passionate about food access, place-based cuisine, and sustainable agriculture. She has managed the Boonton Farmers Market for two years and volunteers with the North NJ Slow Food chapter. In 2017, Megan began the series The Lowly Esculent, an illustration series dedicated to raising awareness to issues surrounding food production and distribution.
