Violet Stone

State Coordinator
Cornell University
Violet is a project coordinator at Cornell University's Small Farms Program. She grew up on a 600-acre wildlife preserve in Northeast Pennsylvania. Her passion for agriculture is inspired by her belief that farmers can create thriving ecosystems that produce healthy and abundant food. When an ecosystem thrives, so do farmers, communities and rural economies. Violet has a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies from Oberlin College and a Certificate in Ecological Horticulture from the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden Program. Prior to joining Cornell's Small Farms Program, she facilitated farm-to-chef sales for a 30-acre organic vegetable farm in the San Francisco Bay area and worked as a farmers' market manager, local foods educator and farm direct-marketing consultant in the Hudson Valley, NY.
