Who are you? Rebecca Johnson
What do you do? Director of Education at the Center for Environment, Economy, and Society at Columbia U. I develop environmental education programs for middle school teachers, journalists and business students.
Where do you live? Lenox Road (not technically in PLG—sorry!)
Where did you grow up? Glassboro, NJ (south, between Philly and Atlantic City). I was born in Bozeman Montana, though. That sounds cooler.
How long have you been a member? 3 years—since the start!
When you do your pickup ? After work, usually sneak in around 7
Where are you coming from? Work….if I’m lucky I’ll have been at a school in Brooklyn. Usually, though, it’s a long haul from upper manhattan
Where are you going to? Home! I always want to clean and prep the veggies right away.
What are you never without at pickup? My shleppy bag. It’s not my veggie tote but it holds my veggie tote and just about everything I carry with me every day. Computer, books, knitting….
What time is it usually? 7-ish
Who cooks your veggies/fruits? ME or maybe occasionally my friend who is a wannabe chef or my boyfriend when we cook together.
Who eats them? ME and any lucky friends who join me for dinner.
What do you think you use the most? The greens, both salad and cooking greens. I love kale and I can add greens to nearly anything. Salads are super versatile for cold dishes.
What’s your favorite fruit or veggie score? Grape tomatoes. When they are good they are like candy
What’s the best part of the CSA? I’m forced to eat my veggies—and they taste good!
Is there a fun fact about you that you would like to share? I’m a twin (but not the evil one)
If you were a fruit or veggie what would you be? Why? I would be a leek: slender, tender, delicate and flavorful and I won’t make you cry like onions do.
