Meet the new North Bay Food Systems Advisor
Julia was raised, in part, in Sonoma County and returns to the North Bay from Davis where she went to school, worked for a small nonprofit program called Davis Farm to School, and was a researcher for the UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program and the Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis.
Julia is already proving to be an asset through her experience and training in institutional sourcing of local agricultural products and her skills in food system analysis and support. As the North Bay Food Systems Advisor, Julia will help strengthen connections between local producers and local consumers. Julia explains, “I am really excited by new and innovative ways to enhance the viability and sustainability of local agriculture while increasing access to healthy food for the entire community. I see this dual task as central to my work as a Food Systems Advisor.”
