Michelle Bruhn, Farmers Market Coordinator and Local Food Advocate

Name: Michelle BruhnMichelle Bruhn Mother Earth News

Occupations: Mother, Local Food and Regenerative Gardening Advocate, Cook and Canner, Community Garden and Farmers Market Coordinator

Residence: White Bear Lake, Minnesota

Background: The Minnesota land Michelle grew up on was wild and lush, followed by white and barren. She learned so much from this and the farmland she later lived on in Sweden. Health issues in college lead her to health food stores in the early 1990s (there weren’t many!). From there, she’s been on a tasty journey of learning about food in all its many forms. Diving deep into local food as part of her work to earn a BA in Mass Communications and PR — paired with her desire to help local farmers spread their good food news — lead Michelle to launch her online presence at She supports local farmers with interviews, social media promotion, and coordinating winter farmers markets.
