Compost Coordinator 

Fiona Lynch always felt slightly out of place being part of the family who grew corn and other veggies in their front yard in Staten Island, but it definitely helped to shape her love for food, agriculture, and the environment.  After graduating SUNY Binghamton with degrees in Environmental Studies and English, Fiona spent several months in Hawaii, living in a tent and working on an organic farm.  She's been with GrowNYC's Composting program since 2011, interned at the Brooklyn Grange this past season, and succeeded in growing seven tiny tomatoes in her dark apartment.  She enjoys dancing, hot coffee, and frozen food scraps.
