Lauren grew up on a small horse farm in the valley. She has deep community roots and loves farmer’s markets. Her goal is for people to know the farmers that grow their food and find a way to intertwine schools, farms, and local businesses around local food.
Craig moved from Nebraska to Washington to experience expand his knowledge of farming. His dream is to take over his family farm or buy land to create/convert the farm into a regenerative and permaculture-based farm.
Jonathan would love to operate/co-create a small-scale farm that contributes to the localization of our food system, amplifies education through programming, and contributes solutions to inequality in our food system.
Sara’s love of farming stems from a passion and a strong belief that good healthy food is everyone’s BASIC right. She took up farming as a career change and started a 1/2 acre garden to get her hands dirty. She joined our program to get hands-on, professional experience.
Sidra’s is a 2nd year FIT and her goal is to start a small-scale, diversified produce and livestock farm west of the Cascades — a mix of veggies and herbs, eventually expanding into bees for honey, and goats or sheep.
