Mia Burger

Grow Local Education Coordinator

Mia grew up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, where she first discovered a love of gardening and cooking. After graduating from the University of Oregon with a BA in International Studies and Spanish, she pursued her interest in agriculture by working on an organic farm in Ecuador. This experience inspired her to obtain an MSc in Agricultural Sciences from the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany, during which time she completed an institutional assessment of the agricultural extension system on Panay Island in The Philippines. Mia is excited to apply her interests in sustainable agriculture, community education, food policy, and nutrition to help others discover the joy of gardening.
