Tracey is a recent graduate of Skidmore College with a BA in Environmental Studies and a minor in Intergroup Relations. During college, Tracey developed a passion for sustainable agriculture and its potential to mitigate climate change after studying food systems in Cuba, Alaska, and New York. She believes strongly that everyone deserves access to healthy, sustainably grown food. Currently, Tracey is completing an AmeriCorps service term through Massachusetts TerraCorps program. She is serving with the nonprofit, Growing Places, that works in North Central Massachusetts to combat food insecurity through farmers markets, community gardens and youth education. This year, Tracey is working on a producer and distributor needs assessment to understand how Growing Places can better support a local, resilient food system.
