Allison Goodman is the head farmer/owner of Allison’s Wonderland Farm in Harvard, IL. A lover of the local food movement and farmers market junkie, she has been growing heirloom veggies for 12 years. At the heart of AWF is a focus on sustainable agriculture and organic growing practices. When she is not farming, Allison works in a high school in Norridge, IL. Interacting with students as a coach, advisor (garden, yearbook, and business clubs), and in the library is quite the fulfilling challenge. In addition to these roles, she is also working within the school to establish a career pathway in agriculture. Passions for local food and local food systems, as well as education (particularly in agriculture) run deep and she is thrilled to bring this experience to The Talking Farm.
