Kendra entered California agriculture by managing a CSA and market garden in the Bay Area, where she also worked in landscape design/restoration, urban agriculture, ag. education, and floriculture. She has an MS in Community Development from UC Davis—where she researched agricultural conservation easements and farmland access. For 5 years she coordinated CA FarmLink’s Central Valley programs, helping farmers/ranchers and landowners with tenure, succession, and farm business and finance needs. Since 2012 she has served on FarmLink’s board, and has consulted with a variety of groups including land trusts, National Young Farmers Coalition, Agrarian Trust, One Farm at a Time, and others. Kendra now lives on the Russian River with her husband Jacob and their three kids.
