Holly Curia, Head Chef

Holly Monet Curia earned her Bachelor's degree in Global Studies from the University of Illinois, then spent many months traveling, working on and learning from organic farms before returning to Urbana to start a small urban farm cooperative, study yoga, grow flowers, and discover life.  "I aspire most in a life to work in unison nature, not at the expense of it.  That's why I'm drawn to pure foods, the "fruits of the earth", to the food that is grown locally, and to the food that is grown personally, with the consideration for the entirety of the planet and the seasons to come.  I'm an aspiring farmer myself and I want to share this experience with others, the enjoyment of discovering the food (and flowers) we can grow from the Earth that we live on, and the infinite joy that comes from simply living."
