Agriculture Outreach Coordinator
Silene DeCiucies has been working for the Conservation Districts since March of 2019. She grew up in
Lamoille county and has wanted to be a soil scientist since she saw her first soil pit at the age of 15. She
has a Bachelor’s in geology and Master’s in soil and crop science, and has worked on livestock, dairy, and
vegetable farms in Vermont, Washington, and upstate New York. She is very excited to work with
Lamoille County farmers and learn from them how to best serve the local farming community in her role
as Agriculture Outreach Coordinator. When not at work, Silene enjoys skiing and running in the woods,
caring for her family’s livestock, making pottery, and advocating dairy products!
