Livestock Assistant & Instructor
One of Charlotte's favorite moments at the Farm School is when students realize the connection between pigs on the farm and bacon on the menu! As Livestock Assistant, she finds satisfaction in the daily routine of farm work and in helping provide meat, milk, and eggs to the McDowell community.
Returning for her third season, Charlotte is proud to be part of this team of farmer-educators. Her previous experience in agriculture includes working in urban crop production and at farmers markets around New York City, caring for dairy herds in upstate New York, and learning how to grow rice in Korea and Japan through World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF). Before joining the McDowell team, Charlotte taught English as a Second Language in New York City and South Korea, and is currently dreaming up ways to combine ESL instruction with farming.
