Margiana Peterson-Rockney

UC Berkeley
Farmer/Doctoral Student
Oakland, CA
Margiana Petersen-Rockney is a 2017 Stone Barns Exchange Fellow. She grew up on a goat dairy farm in Massachusetts. While still in college, Margiana ran a five-acre diversified vegetable and livestock CSA and founded the Young Farmer Network, a community group for new farmers to share management practices and build social capital. After four years farming full time, she scaled back to one acre of garlic production and relocated to Boston. At the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and the Boston Farming Institute, Margiana worked with low-income immigrant and refugee farmers on issues of land access and farm planning. She also directed the Food Literacy Project at Harvard, a fellowship program for students to learn about and engage with the food system. Currently, as a Ph.D. student in UC Berkeley’s Environmental Science, Policy and Management Program, Margiana studies issues at the intersection of climate change and diversified farming systems that affect limited-resource farmers.
