About Lorraine Vandermyden

Lorraine is a Guelph native and grew up with a strong interest and passion for the environment and conservation. An interest in food security developed in high school, leading Lorraine to study a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture with a minor in ecology at the University of Guelph – a degree that would allow her to combine these interests. Throughout her undergrad, Lorraine was exposed to agriculture and the immense potential for the industry to contribute to a more sustainable future. Lorraine decided to continue her studies at the University of Guelph, in order to contribute to research that will help improve recommendations given to policy makers and growers in terms of fertilizer management and diversifying rotations with cover crops. When she is not working on her project, Lorraine can be found working her part time job milking cows, playing hockey, or working on her garden.
