Meet Melanie Choy
I've had the pleasure of working at Soil Born Farms nearly 6 years. I marvel at the changes that have taken place in my time here: New farmers and staff to befriend, new fields in production, site improvements to our kitchen and outdoor classroom and incredible work gleaning, growing school gardens and community-building. At the same time, my own family and community have been growing. Often — certainly in my own past work lives — work life and personal life are two very separate spheres. With each year at Soil Born Farms, the two parts of my life intersect more and more. My child loved her time at Summer Day Camp this year (see photo : ); my friends make it a point to be at the Autumn Equinox, other parents in my child's kindergarten classroom work as partners on our programs and events, my local grocery store worker's wife brings her students to Soil Born on field trips, and my neighbor is a donor! I am thankful to have found a way to use my skills to support the vision and mission of my workplace and it is more and more apparent that in doing so I am also supporting my own community! Soil Born Farms is our community farm: Imagine the Possibilities. Please donate today. ~Melanie Choy
The impact Soil Born Farms has on the Sacramento community is astounding. Their thoughtful and holistic approach to the region's food system is revolutionizing the way Sacramentans eat.
