Leah Twillman

Garden Assistant & Instructor

I had not a clue what I wanted to do after I graduated college, so I decided to travel Europe on the cheap. I volunteered on farms in England and France, and while cheap travel was my main objective, I ended up falling hard for farm life. I loved getting my hands in the dirt and being sore at the end of long days; I loved knowing the story of the food on my plate and the land it came from; I loved meeting and learning from others who ingrained their passion for food in me. As an instructor at MFS I hope to share that love and appreciation - for food, for the land it comes from - with our visitors, and let them know growing is as enjoyable and simple as they want it to be.
