More on the Farm:

Marsha studied agroecology and sustainable rural development at UC Berkeley, UniCamp in Brazil, and UC Santa Cruz. Her first farming experience came through the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) program, where she experienced firsthand the many struggles small farmers face - from limited land access and labor, to overbearing competition from large industrial producers.
Marsha’s grandparents farmed rice in Okayama, Japan, while her partner, Modesto comes from a self-subsistence farming family in Oaxaca, Mexico.
