Megan Svoboda

Megan Svoboda is a baker, gardener, and lover of tea, trees, and stories! She graduated from Smith College with a BA in anthropology. She’s worked with a team at the UMass-Amherst creating environmental and economic impact reports for worker cooperatives in the Massachusetts Pioneer Valley. Megan’s interest in cooperatives was fueled by her move into Tenney House, an all-women vegan/vegetarian-housing cooperative. There she was able to share her interest in local economic systems with other students, learn from other radical, intelligent women and break bread every night with a wonderful, large, loud, and eccentric extended family. For the past year she has worked with CoFED helping share the stories of students changing the world, one local food system at a time! Megan lives in the Bay Area.
