Chef by Day, Sustainability Student by Night

Ploy Khunisorn, Director of Event Management of the Harvard Extension Environmental Club, is completing her Master’s Degree in Sustainability in this May at the Harvard University Extension School. She is the founder of Ploy’s Kitchen cooking show and also the Program Manager for the culinary arts, music, science, history, contemporary issues, literature, and writing programs at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education (CCAE). She is working on her Consulting with Clients for Sustainability Solutions Capstone as her capstone track to complete the degree. She is offering a new class, “Sustainability 101” this summer at the CCAE as part of the consulting project. She is creating the Sustainability series, “Sustainability in Your Own Backyard: Let’s Go Green.” The series included Sustainability 101, Backyard Agriculture: Experience from Homegrown 30, Building A Small Raised Bed for Gardening, Growing Fresh Herbs, and Cooking with Fresh Herbs. She is going to expand more sustainability hands-on courses for the fall. She is also working with the Farmers’ Market at Harvard to offer a collaborative cooking class to raise awareness about local food and local community. "I passionately love cooking and creating new recipes for fun and delicious dishes," says Ploy.
