CHANTAL CASTILLO
Work Study: Urban Farmer

Chantal is a third year student at Saint Louis University from Dallas, Texas. Quite a few factors have influenced Chantal's interest in sustainability and urban farming. Particularly, teaching kids from an early age to care for the earth and appreciate the simplicity of nature while working at outdoor adventure camps has strengthened her love for the environment. One of Chantal's career goals is to join the Peace Corps and go abroad to help shape different issues like economics, health and politics in communities that are in need. She believes what she learns at Urban Harvest STL will be significant in that matter and will empower her to live a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle. A few of Chantal's other interests include reading, running and exploring the great outdoors.
