Thank you, Farmer Bri!

After serving five years in various roles at the Food Love Farm, Brianna Abundiz will be moving on to new endeavors in local agriculture that will continue to motivate people to enjoy fresh, seasonal foods.  Farmer Bri was first inspired to get her hands dirty when she accompanied her son on a farm field trip at Dinner Bell Farm in 2014.  She joined the Food Love Farm crew as an intern in the spring of 2015 and then added a role as a Farm to School Liaison that fall.  Continuing to develop both her farming and teaching skills, she became a Farm Educator at the Food Love Farm in the spring of 2016, where she has spent 4 seasons leading field trips, selling produce at weekly U-Picks, and cooking with kids at summer camps.  Brianna says that her favorite part of her role at the Food Love Farm has been meeting and building a relationship with her community.  Brianna is responsible for implementing a robust garden program at Lyman Gilmore school and she has introduced hundreds of kids to the joys of growing food.  Brianna’s goal for the future is to continue to inspire future farmers and kids!  Sierra Harvest and our community thank Farmer Bri for all of the time, energy, and love she has put into her many roles and we look forward to her future accomplishments in the local food movement!
