Matt Kelterborn joins Chatham University as the new Eden Hall Farm Assistant. Previously, he worked for Pennsylvania Certified Organic as a Certification Specialist. In that role he was responsible for the certification review process of over two-hundred producers and processors in the region. Orignially from Michigan, Matt grew up on a small vegetable farm selling produce through an on-farm stand and local food co-op. He attended Michigan State University and earned his degree in International Relations at the Residential Public Policy School. Afterwords, Matt completed the 9-month intensive Organic Farmer Training Program at Michigan State’s Organic Farm to delve further into the year-round manegement of an organic farm in a cold climate. With these prior experiences, Matt hopes to contribute to the education and experiential learning of all the students in the Falk School of Sustainability.
