Meet Emily. She joins Rock Point after having recently completed a Master’s in Community Development and Applied Economics at the University of Vermont. Before moving to Vermont, Emily was involved in a wide variety of food systems work, including cooking, gardening, event planning and editing a food and farms publication. As the Garden and Volunteer Coordinator at Rock Point Center, she hopes to help grow the Rock Point community through expansion of the current garden initiatives, promotion of the space as an educational tool, and utilization of garden products to foster food security in the Burlington area. When Emily is not at Rock Point she can be found biking around town, seeking out swimming holes, or cooking for her family and friends.
