Katrina Light, Bard College

Katrina Light is the Supervisor of Food and Agricultural Programs and works to advance local food growing, sustainable purchasing and overall agricultural efforts at Bard College. Before joining Bard's Office of Sustainability, she worked for Chartwells Dining Services as their Food Sustainability Director. Katrina was raised on a farm and has taught food and agriculture focused classes at the University of Vermont, the Putney School, and currently teaches Bard's Food Systems Practicum. Katrina is passionate about hands-on learning through farming, composting and culinary education. She encourages everyone to dig a little deeper into understanding  the complex factors that go into growing food from the treatment of workers and animals, to land and energy use. She hopes more individuals and institutions will join the good food movement.
