About our Speaker:
Haley, a former volunteer with Global Garden, manages all produce sales/marketing for the farm, assists in fundraising/development and executes farm programming. She graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago with a Bachelors's degree in Psychology and formerly worked as a research assistant with UIC's anthropology department on a project about how community gardens in Chicago contribute to one's physical and emotional well-being. When Haley is not working for the farm or planting in her own garden, she is probably playing music gigs or reading.
