About the Blog

Welcome to the Yale Sustainable Food Project student blog! Check here for information on what’s happening at the Yale Farm, food and agriculture in the news, recipes and cooking tips, reviews of organic products, coverage of YSFP events, and more.

The YSFP is an organization of Yale University, but here at the blog students get a corner all their own. We want this to be a forum for people to talk about the issues that the Yale Sustainable Food Project thinks are important, and we encourage you to comment on our posts and ask plenty of questions — contact us at with anything you’d like to share.

And who are we? Well, let us tell you:

Nozlee Samadzadeh (MC ’10) – It’s not easy to balance love of the Internet and love of farming, but Nozlee believes it can (and should!) be done. She interned at the Yale Farm during the summer of 2009, shoveling compost and seeding lettuce and harvesting Sungold tomatoes. Now she edits the YSFP blog, a less brawny but just as worthy YSFP task that brings together computers, farming, and food — food being the third of the things she loves most of all.

Margaret Tung (CC ’10) – One day Margaret went to Budapest. Two months later, she became obsessed with farmer’s markets, fruit, goat cheese, and crunchy nut butters. She’s been happily married to chewable food for the last twenty years; every recipe or bite of delicious, wholesome food is a reassertion of her vows—only in death shall they part. In her spare time Margaret likes to be in California, at the beach, on a lake, on a bike ride, on a picnic blanket (eating, obviously), or hanging out outside. These are all reasons why she also hates it when it rains.

Anastatia Curley (’07) – Anastatia worked with the project from 2007-2009, and now lives in Boston. She’s still with us, however, through her “Fast, Cheap, and Easy” column for the blog.

David Thier (DC ’09) – David graduated from Yale and moved on to bigger things, but we remember him fondly as the editor of this blog during its inaugural 2008-9 year.

Student guest bloggers – Too many cooks might spoil the soup, but too many voices are an asset. We’ll be featuring a variety of guest posts by students from around Yale about the issues they believe in most passionately. Watch this space!

    Glad I found you and will follow you. I love sustainable farming as I am currently turning my entire front yard into an edible landscape garden.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very pleased that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing regarding this.
