Volunteers Needed for Food Day on 10/21!

We are still in need of volunteers for 2017 Food Day! We need at least 2 more folks to help serve in the Food Day Cafe on Saturday 10/21 from 10 am until just after 1 pm.  You would need to already have or be willing to obtain a food handlers card. It will cost you about $5 and a little of your time to take the test. Here are a couple of links to testing sites.…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I am an active member of the Maricopa County Food System Coalition and currently work as the Local Food Development Coordinator with Local First Arizona.

I lived in Ahwatukee until I was 10, and while living there the most exercise I got was running after the ice cream truck. Recognizing that my family and I needed a different lifestyle, we uprooted and moved north to beautiful, but rural Cornville in the Verde Valley.

There, we had acres of land on which we decided we should get a goat. Anyone who has ever has a goat knows that you don't have "just 1" for long. We soon had a whole herd of does, and fell in love with all the produce they had to offer us: fresh raw milk (which could be cooked or cultured into a number of other treats), fiber, and companionship. We taught ourselves to make goat milk soap and founded a business manufacturing and wholesaling the wonderful skin-nourishing bars.

Goats were our "gateway drug" and we soon had chickens (for eggs, fertilizer, bug-eating, soil-aerating), geese (to guard the livestock and provide a good laugh), horses (because they're awesome), a pig (for meat), pigeons (also because they're awesome), dogs (to guard the livestock), cats (to keep rodents and other snake-food at a minimum), worms (for composting), and bees (for honey harvesting and pollination) - each serving multiple functions for us and helping me develop a strong land ethic that was further honed by my college studies.

I had the privilege of working at Valley Permaculture Alliance as their Community Engagement Director where I worked with (the best!) volunteers and local producers, and fell in love with the potential of our local food community.

We are just wrapping up the season at the park. We don't have activities in the summer because of the heat. If you'd like to come out for an edible and medicinal plant walk next fall I offer them once a month and they're on the Lost Dutchman State Park website. I see you're a long way from Apache Junction. There are still plenty of wild edibles in the Cornville area. I don't get up that way much, but if you're ever in the AJ area let me know.
