Caitlin Mandel is passionate about supporting local food producers and helping them educate the public about sustainable food choices.

We are always adding materials to our online courses, free resource library, and agritourism event kits, so be sure to sign up to learn when new stuff hits the virtual shelves!

Working with local food producers is a dream come true for Caitlin. She was born and raised in Rhode Island, studied marine biology as an undergraduate and worked as a lobster-wrangler/tagger, nature camp counselor and waitress before returning to school for a masters degree in environmental management. In school, she’s learned so much about the principles of conservation and sustainability but whenever conversations turned towards how to solve these huge societal issues – it always boiled down to the need to change human behavior. She realized that our food systems are a fundamental link we can use to start conversations about the environment and sustainability. Everyone eats, and everyone is amazed to learn more about where our food comes from.
