Reyna is the new Assistant Community Farm Manager at Petaluma Bounty. She is so happy to be welcome to the farm and a part of the development and care of the land.
Reyna hails originally from the East Bay where recently she was immersed in the urban agriculture movement with roles at youth urban farm Acta Non Verba, UC Cooperative Extension of Alameda County and Oakland’s Food Policy Council. She has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science & Policy and graduate degree in Food Security. She completed the Bay Area Farmer Training Program with the Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA) and continued her farm training on local farms in Sebastopol. She is a proponent of urban farming as a changemaker for building health and wealth in community and believes our ability to collaborate is the ultimate metric we can use to define our progress in building a sustainable and just future.
When she’s not on the farm, you can find Reyna hiking, exploring new cuisines and craft brews, and taking her one-eyed cat on walks.
