Sustainable Food Systems Advisor, UCCE Los Angeles County
I work on farm-to-fork food issues, focusing particularly on urban agriculture education, research and policy. My day includes anything from a visit to a farm to a trip to City Hall. A big part of what I do is translating information on agriculture into a format that's easy to read and understand. For example, people who operate urban farms, school gardens or community gardens need to understand, in basic terms, how and why to test their soil, but soil science is very technical and confusing.
