Meet Andrew Graham – MOFGA's Community Engagement Coordinator

December 1, 2018 – Andrew Graham, MOFGA’s community engagement coordinator, grew up in Pennsylvania, attended Kimberton Waldorf School from pre-school through grade 12, and in 2004 moved with his family to Vermont. He earned a bachelor’s degree in community and international development from the University of Vermont and then spent two years with AmeriCorps. He moved to Portland, Oregon, in 2011, and lived at an urban farm co-op before moving to Keene, New Hampshire, to attend Antioch University, where he earned a master’s degree in environmental studies. Graham loves to cook and do all things related to food, including growing and processing it. A Quaker, he believes that each of us has a duty to be an ally to people who are suffering and to speak up on behalf of people who are disenfranchised.
