Loren Cardeli, a Warren Wilson College senior from Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y., has won a $10,000 Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship from Annie’s Homegrown, a natural and organic food company.
A sociology/anthropology major at Warren Wilson, Cardeli is one of two undergraduate students to receive a $10,000 scholarship from Annie’s in the national competition. He is a crew member on Warren Warren’s 275-acre farm that practices sustainable agriculture, and has worked on farms in Colorado and Vermont.
"We need to change the way we grow our food," Cardeli wrote in his scholarship application. "I want to show the world how growing food responsibly can also be rewarding financially and holistically."
