Hello! My name is Margaret Patkus. I am Poughkeepsie native--I graduated from Spackenkill High School last year. I just completed my first year at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, where I plan to pursue a major in Environmental Studies and a minor in Race and Ethnic Studies. I also play the viola, and am passionate about being active (Pilates and hiking are favorites) and preparing beautiful, local eats! I am so excited to be a part of this community and to work on improving community food and environmental justice.
