Christine Gall – Education Specialist
After earning a B.A. in History at Haverford College, Christine dove headfirst into the world of garden and food-based learning. She spent time working for a variety of educational farms in both New York and Vermont, including Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, the Merck Forest and Farmland Center, and Shelburne Farms, before transitioning to educating within a school setting. She spent two years in a rural school district in Mid-Coast Maine as a FoodCorps service member, managing multiple elementary school gardens and fostering connections between these growing spaces and classroom curriculum.
Christine currently divides her time between KidsGardening.org and the Burlington School Food Project, a Farm to School organization within the Burlington School District where she previously completed an AmeriCorps term. Her combined role serves to better connect youth to gardens and food systems at the local and national level.
Christine grew up in the Lower Hudson River Valley in New York, where she has fond memories of exploring the woods and cow pastures of the state park near her childhood home. Despite being enamored with farm animals from a young age, her appreciation for food and agriculture did not truly develop until her college years.
