Samantha Grenier (she, her, hers) is a Maine SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator with Healthy Northern Kennebec based in Waterville. She joined the SNAP-Ed team in April 2020, bringing with her experience in various sectors of the Maine food system including education with FoodCorps in Eastport and Indian Township, farming with Villageside Farm in Freedom, and baking at Rising Tide Co-op in Damariscotta. Sam has a foundational love of cooking, healthful living, nature, and gathering around food with her loved ones. She more recently developed her love for gardening while helping to create and cultivate school gardens in Downeast Maine. Some of Sam’s favorite soul-filling activities include spending time with soil, her family, the ocean, and good friends (humans and animals alike). She is excited to be a part of the Maine School Garden Network board helping to connect school gardens with resources relevant to them.
