People are talking

  • "Megan is a wealth of information. Her masterful and informed perspective on local food systems has been extremely helpful for me in my work with local food coordinating and local wholesale market development. I have witnessed Megan present her research to a variety of audiences and have been impressed with her deliberate and specific language around the topic. She is clear and persuasive and thorough but what sets her apart is her use of humor and wit to engage her audience-members deeply in whatever topic she is presenting. “
