We have a whole new crop of staff and interns joining the Nourishing the Planet team this spring. Today, meet Arielle Golden.
Arielle graduated in May 2010 from Wesleyan University in the College of Letters, a program that incorporates history, philosophy, and literature. While at school she was an apprentice and designer in the theater costume shop, and head chef for a weekly meal for seventy people. She developed an obsession with food policy blogs and books, which eventually led her to India.
Arielle returned in September from a yearlong fellowship in Ahmedabad, India, where she worked on nutrition and food projects with women and children in village and tribal areas, encouraging government supplemental food programs to take cultural appropriateness into account.
Her lifelong love for travel has taken her many places, from Buenos Aires to the Himalayas of Kashmir. Arielle loves crafting, cooking for pleasure, being outside, and braving new adventures.
