More About Erin Griffin
Originally hailing from the Adirondacks in upstate New York, Erin now resides in Gunnison, Colorado where she is completing a Master in Environmental Management degree at Western State Colorado University. Erin returned to school after spending five years as an environmental educator throughout the United States, from Northern Vermont, to the misty Oregon Coast, to the sunny Rocky Mountains. In graduate school, Erin focused on the complexities of local food economies and non-profit management. As a concluding project in partnership with Guidestone Colorado, Erin organized the 2016 Colorado Land Link Forum, a 2-day event designed to spark conversation and connections around farmer land access and support in Southwest Colorado. When not working to support local food economies, Erin can most likely be found outside on a bike, on skis, on foot with a field guide, or with hands in the soil.
