Maggie Nowak Portrait
My name is Maggie Nowak, and I am an urban farmer and chef committed to food justice, environmental sustainability and racial equity. I graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 2016 with a focus on food, faith and social change and now work for Lowell Public Schools and a community non-profit called Mill City Grows as the school district's Farm to School Manager -- supporting food, gardening and nutrition education in the classroom as well as the sourcing of local produce in school cafeterias. As a Chicagoland native, I appreciate New England's amazing coastlines, mountain ranges and seafood. When I am not tending to my garden, I love hiking, camping and cooking with my husband (Leverett Tutor John Nowak), as well as whittling spoons and embroidering! You may also catch me on my bright green kayak in the Charles River.
