Alyssa Adkins is originally from Wilmington, Delaware where she grew up enjoying local strawberries, peaches and cider applesauce from a neighborhood farm. She moved to NYC to study music and nutrition, eventually becoming a Registered Dietitian and completing a Masters of Public Health. Hoping to use her expertise at the community level, Alyssa jumped into the local food movement. She landed in a series of “growing” experiences, from McEnroe Organic Farm upstate, Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm in Queens, the Long Island City CSA as farm liaison, and Greenmarket. Moving forward, she plans to spend time farming in Spain and Hawai’i and to more fully explore her passion for dance and making boozy ice cream.
