Gen Spellman

January 26, 2022 | 

Growing up on the Eastern end of Long Island, Gen was fortunate to be immersed in an area rich with farming traditions; on the land, her grandparents grew potatoes on and next door to her parents’ general store. She observed how food and land could tell stories across generations and communities from a young age. She has carried those lessons learned and applied them to the subsequent communities she has lived in. Volunteering and working on farms across the country and assisting friends in making their farm or garden dreams a reality. She is grateful to call Vermont home and to have the opportunity to share her passion for farming and food with the VYCC members.
