Eliza Baker-Wacks

Growing up in Los Angeles, I was so lucky to have access to local food all year round and parents who loved trying new things in the garden and on our plates. After graduating from Colby College with a major in Environmental Studies, I headed to Hawaii and worked on a human-powered two-acre organic vegetable farm, where my passion for farming was born! I loved spending long days in the sun and eating crunchy produce straight from the fields. I also enjoyed the constant brainstorming and problem solving that went with it. I returned to Maine in 2019 and began working as an apprentice at Wolfe’s Neck Center. I immediately fell in love with the seasonal nature of farming in Maine. When I’m not covered in soil here at the farm, you can find me hiking Maine’s mountains, swimming in the ocean, and baking tasty treats!
