Langley resident joins board | NOTABLE

Antonia Palkovic has been appointed as a supervisor and will fill a midterm vacancy on the board for the Whidbey Island Conservation District.

Palkovic moved to Whidbey Island in 2010 and lives in Langley. She currently co-manages Molly’s Island Garden, where she grows vegetables for Molly’s CSA, local farmers markets, grocers and restaurateurs.

Her term runs through May 2012.

Palkovic grew up in Plattsburgh, N.Y., and both sets of her grandparents were Midwestern dairy farmers.

After completing her bachelor’s degree in political science in South Africa, Palkovic taught English in South Korea before returning to the U.S. to follow her dream of farming.

She interned and worked as an assistant farm manager on several organic vegetable farms in the Catskills and Finger Lakes areas of New York before pursuing graduate studies at the University of California, Davis, where she specialized in soil science and agro-ecology.
