Megan is a student studying environmental studies and geography at the University of Victoria which is situated on the lands of unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ. Her interest in food systems sparked in her first year at UVic where she got involved with the Community Cabbage, a group that weekly diverts food from the waste stream and serves it for free at the university. This interest for food systems grew as she got a job working with CRFAIR for the summers where she has learned and is continuing to learn about the local food system. Now going into her third year she is returning to work for the Office of Campus Planning and Sustainability and is working on topics related to food and sustainability in the University. Her passion for sustainable food systems has made her very excited to be a new board member of the Compost Education Center.
