Meet the staff 

Lindsey Holmberg 

I have extensive experience working in diverse communities teaching gardening and cooking skills, from preschoolers to the elderly. I am passionate about equipping communities to grow their own food and inspire them to make healthier food choices in their kitchen. I believe experiential learning is key to positive change and that by claiming a active role in food consumption, empowers individuals.
