Shannon Algiere is farmer educator at Stone Barns Center. She was introduced to an agrarian lifestyle as a young girl, frolicking in strawberry fields and peach orchards and showing goats and rabbits at local fairs. While studying at the University of Rhode Island, Shannon worked at a natural food cooperative, where she was inspired to think about food sourcing and holistic nutrition. Shannon has taught at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, volunteered as a ranger for the Costa Rica National Park Service, managed a biodynamic greenhouse operation and helped develop a 60-member market farm in Connecticut.
