Madelaine Fargeorge, Farm Education Coordinator, has worked in the Philadelphia School District for the past 9 years providing an array of after school programming for high school students throughout the city. While her programming has largely been based on student interest, ranging from anime to fashion design, she has always been most excited about projects based in food justice and environmental stewardship. This passion led her to her most recent position as a Nutrition Educator for UNI (Urban Nutrition Initiative) where school gardens, lunch clubs, nutrition education, and community outreaches were an integral part of the school’s culture. Madelaine is excited to be joining the Common Ground team where she hopes her dedication and energy will help expand on the farm’s role and use both within the school and in the community. Madelaine, who more commonly goes by Maddy, currently resides in Hamden, has a pet turtle, and enjoys the outdoors.
