Dicot Workshop was founded by Maggie Gosselin, whose 15-year career has revolved around exploring the profound impacts of food and agriculture on our health and the environment. Her experience runs the gamut from living and working on a small urban farm to focusing on national nutrition programs and policies.
Most recently, Maggie was part of the National Farm to School team at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, where she led training and technical assistance efforts, conducted policy research, and crafted engaging communications pieces. She has also worked as a specialist for USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children; managed educational programs for the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture; coordinated projects for the Community Environmental Council; collaborated with friends to create The Local Foods Wheel; and been immersed in farm life at the Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens.
Now, through Dicot Workshop, Maggie offers a range of consulting services to both governmental organizations and non-profits. Specific areas of expertise include federal nutrition programs, local food systems, and the intersection of agriculture and public health. To all of her projects, Maggie brings considerable experience working with actors across the food system, enthusiasm for implementing and improving programs, strong communication and analytical skills, a good sense of visual design, and, of course, a deep passion for this work!
Maggie holds an M.S. in Agriculture, Food, and the Environment from Tufts University and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara. For her full resume, visit LinkedIn. Maggie is based in San Francisco but happy to consider projects in any location.
