Amy Wallner

I coordinate volunteers at the Hunger Task Force Farm. I maintain open lines of communication with volunteers before and after their visits to the farm. I also work side by side with volunteers in the field. In 2014, more than 5,000 community volunteers joined our staff at The Farm to plant, maintain and harvest nearly 800,000lbs of fresh produce. All of the produce grown at The Farm is distributed free of charge to hungry neighbors. In addition, I farm just under one acre of vegetables at Amy's Acre in Caledonia, WI. I grow an array of fresh fruits and vegetables for Milwaukee restaurants and grocery stores. I have a degree in horticulture, soil science and environmental studies from UW-Madison. I grew up in Galesville, a small town in rural, Western Wisconsin. Galesville is nestled in the rolling bluffs of the Mississippi River and is home of the famous 10 foot apple pie! I am passionate about small scale, diverse farms. I am equally as passionate about engaging non-farmers in agriculture and encouraging people to be active participants in their food choices.
