Megan MacLeod is our remote Communications Coordinator from the little haven of Leitches Creek, Cape Breton. When she’s not tending to her creekside garden or enjoying the natural beauty of Nova Scotia, she’s running after cows and planting a tropical food forest with her partner at  Wild Forest Permaculture in Andhra Pradesh, India. She has a Master in Food, Culture & Communication: Human Ecology & Sustainability from the Slow Food founded University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy and a BSc in Human Nutrition from StFX. Her research has involved ethnobiological assessments of mountainous beekeepers in northern Italy and considering food policy impacts at a national level in Ireland and Scotland.
