Marnie McMullin

Marnie earned a B.S. in Sustainable Agriculture from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. Since her time at Evergreen, Marnie has immersed herself in many aspects of sustainable food production and distribution from vegetable farming to managing the produce department at local grocery coop. She believes that we are what we eat- in our bodies as well as within our communities. This passion has driven much of her work for the past two decades. Marnie brings this passion to her job at the IPM Institute where she works with apple growers in the upper Midwest and Northeast region of the country, helping them grow a successful apple crop using sustainable practices. Marnie also works as a part of the Sustainable Food Group team to help food companies create and implement sustainable practices. Marnie loves to can. She preserves fruits and vegetables from her farmer friends in the peak of the season and then gifts them to her family and friends all year long.
