Linda Berlin

Dr. Berlin has been with the University of Vermont (UVM) since 1992, when she began coordinating a federally funded nutrition education program for underserved families (“EFNEP”). In 1999, she moved into a faculty position within the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences, at which time her role shifted to include broader involvement in food and food systems issues. In March 2009 she became half-time Director of the UVM Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and also continues as an Extension faculty member focused on food systems. She holds an M.S. from Cornell University in human nutrition (1990) and a doctorate from Tufts University where she was enrolled in a program titled “Agriculture, Food, and Environment” based out of the Tufts School of Nutrition Science and Policy (2006). Since being in Vermont, she chaired boards of two Burlington-based non-profits (Vermont Community Garden Network and Hunger Free Vermont) and was on the board for the national Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior. She currently co-facilitates the Vermont Sustainable Agriculture Council and is a member of the Farm to Plate Consumer Education and Marketing Working Group and Food Access Cross-cutting Team
