Transforming Agriculture, Perennially


Hannah Rodgers


Hannah, from St. Louis, recently graduated from Oberlin College with majors in Biology and Neuroscience. Last summer, she did ecology research with the National Ecological Observatory Network in Wisconsin. This past year, she has gotten involved in sustainable agriculture and did a senior research project on macroinvertebrates in agricultural fields, as well as worked on a gardening access project through Oberlin Community Services.


What drew you to work at TLI?

The work that goes on here is interesting, radical, and always aiming to connect to and improve the larger community.

What would people never guess that you’ve done as part of your role?

Hmm…recently I’ve been digging a lot of holes…

What TLI perennial crop do you look forward to eating most, and how would you prepare it?

Definitely Kernza®, I love baking bread!

What is your motto / favorite quote?

“Being lost is never a matter of not knowing where you are, it’s a matter of not not knowing where you aren’t — and I don’t care at all about where I’m not.” – The Phantom Tollbooth
