Manager

A native Staten Islander, Nan Smith's love for the country took her to the Blue Ridge Mts. of Virginia where growing food is a way of life.  Although back in NY for many years, her attention focused on local environmental concerns while working as the office manager for design firms. She shifted interests toward the "environment within" when she graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2011. Now she shops, chops, cooks and blends up nutritious dishes made with local nourishing food and teaches others to do the same.  Passionate about teaching children, their parents and all who want to learn, Nan shows how to support their health by eating real food. As a master composter she maintains a small garden in the back yard. When not playing with food, you find her sewing sock monkeys or knitting plastic yarn and teaching sewing for all ages at the Staten Island MakerSpace.
