Jenny Kutter began work in the environmental studies department in 2008. Her interests in science and the environment have taken her career in a variety of directions: analyst at the newborn screening laboratory for the State of Minnesota, lab manager at a private water testing laboratory, head baker at Saint Benedict's Monastery, and garden manager for Common Ground Garden. Her interests in the environment spill over into her home life where she and her husband have been restoring a 100-year-old farmhouse, complete with geothermal heating/cooling and solar photovoltaic electricity. A solarthermal winter greenhouse keeps her rich in greens throughout the winter, and summer gardens and a small chicken ranch help feed her passion for cooking and eating locally.
