The Gillings Sustainable Agriculture Project: A Gillings Innovative Laboratory


Sabrina Dora López

Sabrina López grew up in South Florida. Much of her free time in sunny suburbia was spent playing bumper karts in the frigid aisles of supermarkets with her brothers, or scouting for the latest low-fat food-like substance.

During her many visits to Argentina, where her family is from, she didn’t venture far from her grandparent’s dining room table. Her fondest memories are day-long lunches eating empanadas, fresh pasta and milanesas (breaded skirt steak) and drinking Tab.

Sabrina graduated from Tufts University in 2004. Her job experience has included curatorial work at a Boston-area museum, public relations outreach at an independent graphic design and publishing firm, and communications programming at the International Planned Parenthood Federation. In 2008, Sabrina spent time working on a small-scale sustainable pig farm with a farmer who developed  a mobile USDA-inspected field slaughter unit.

Most recently, she is completing her masters at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is involved in several exciting  projects concerning food system reform in the Triangle.The School of Journalism has been providing her with valuable multimedia and public relations skills to communicate the simple issues she is so passionate about: food, where it comes from, and why we eat what we eat.
