Carina Vowels (2021-2021)

As a forever student and seeker of that which nourishes, Carina found FoodShed in 2017 when she moved back home to Crystal Lake during her search for community initiatives similar to those she saw flourishing in other parts of the Great Lakes region. Carina has found geography, anthropology, yoga, permaculture and archery to be Earth’s most magnetic fields of study. Her experiences as an environmental educator and street canvasser have woven neatly into her innate foundation of steadfastly focusing on community engagement. Presently, Carina is the studio facilitator at the Yoga Lounge and one of three farmers at Soulful Farm, both in Woodstock. She is eternally an avid note taker, aunt to eleven precious kiddos and a budding photographer.
