grew up on a homestead in central Massachusetts, where she milked goats and weeded the garden even as a small child. In her high school years, Cella worked on an organic fruit and vegetable farm, where she learned how to make hay, drive a tractor, and grow some mean strawberries. She went on to attend Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina where she studied Environmental Education. Cella’s love for agriculture and education has brought her to work in school gardens of Detroit, indigenous mountain villages of Ecuador, vegetable and livestock farms in Minnesota & Wisconsin, a cheese-making dairy farm in western Massachusetts, and an incubator farm for immigrant and minority farmers near Madison. Cella loves food, and all the aspects of growing, preparing, and eating it.
