Maureen Gullen (Stella Gardens intern 2012)

Hi my name is Maureen Gullen.  I am from Morton Grove, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). Currently, I am a senor at St. Olaf College studying biology and environmental studies.  I have always loved food, weather eating it, looking at it, or buying it.  After taking a class of food justice I realized my passion for food is something I would like to pursue by hopefully attending graduate school for sustainable agriculture/food systems.  However, for now I am focusing of my work in Stella Gardens as well as my summer project, turning our beautiful produce into chutneys, salsas, and other unique preserves.
