Winnifred Lee grew up in a house in Brooklyn. With the subway rumbling in the back, she watched her mom cultivate various Asian vegetables in the front yard and ate amaranth on a regular basis. In 2010, after a couple of years working in the corporate world, she left for a farm in Vermont and hasn't looked back. Her farming adventures have brought her to Wassaic (Dutchess County), Riverhead (Suffolk County) and even Randall's Island here in NYC. She is passionate about food sovereignty, cooking and eating delicious food, working with children and running through sprinklers.
