Elizabeth is motivated by a deep desire to connect people to the land on which they live. She believes that we all have a responsibility to care for the earth and each other. Elizabeth grew up as an unschooled youth, learning alongside her family’s goats, chickens, ducks, vegetable gardens, and fruit trees on a small farm outside of Portland, Oregon. Her educational background includes immersive studies of organic agriculture, permaculture, intentional community development, natural building, dance, yoga, and creative nonfiction writing. She has extensive experience as an educator in both indoor and outdoor settings, with preschoolers through adults. In 2017 she completed a degree in Sustainable Community Development from Prescott College, with a focus on Mentoring Future Generations. Most recently she worked for Rogue Farm Corps as a Chapter Coordinator facilitating hands-on training programs for beginning farmers and ranchers.
In 2022 she and her partner moved to Southern Indiana where they are developing a farm and nonprofit education center focused on land-connected craft. On the farm and in all life Elizabeth honors the complexities of power and privilege and is committed to ongoing learning around how to be a better ancestor, aly, and activist. When she’s not at work in front of a computer, or out tending to the land, you’ll likely find her climbing a mountain, swimming in a wild river, or cooking delicious food to share with friends.
