Anna Beach – Food and Nourishment Leader

June 2, 2022 | 

Pronouns: she/her

Anna came to VYCC to pursue her curiosity around food, especially how food can be a way to learn about the ecology of a place. At Saint Michael’s College, where she studied Environmental Studies and Political Science, Anna was deeply involved with the campus farm and benefited greatly from place-based learning as well as leading volunteers on the farm. She is eager to both share and gain food utilization skills this year at VYCC because she believes that food is a fun and rewarding way to build community through working with each other and with the land. In her spare time, Anna enjoys practicing yoga, experimenting with new ingredients and recipes, and learning more about perennial crops and foraging.
