Catherine Fisher Campus Farm Manager and Assistant Director of Sustainability she/her/hers
Catherine is a 2021 graduate from DePauw who majored in English Writing. She was an Environmental Fellow and member of the Sustainability Leadership Program where she worked at the farm as an intern and summer Ullem Fellow. Catherine finds an incredible sense of purpose from connecting with people and her local environment and sees the farm as a location for both to happen. She loves that it's a place where anyone, regardless of their background experience, can feel the power and joy of growing their own food, giving new life to the land, watching the seasons change, or just pausing from daily business to work with their hands and enjoy the sun.
