Profile

I am one of the garden teachers at the Edible Schoolyard Berkeley. I started this position in the fall of 2011. I grew up in Oakland, CA, graduated from Oakland High, and attended Merritt and Laney Junior colleges, focusing on environmental education with an emphasis on urban agriculture. For the last 15 years, I have devoted my professional career towards working with youth and people of color, teaching a host of subjects such as job readiness, conservation, experiential education, garden education, food justice and local food systems. Before working with ESY Berkeley, I was the farm/garden manager for People's Grocery in West Oakland CA, Garden teacher at Longfellow Middle School in Berkeley, CA and Garden coordinator for Berkeley Youth Alternatives, also in Berkeley, CA. I have a special spot in my heart for community gardens, farmers markets and local producers, and I'm a huge advocate of school gardens. I believe in the power of creating opportunities for young people to experience the outdoors, from the wilderness to farming. I am passionate about social change and believe that everyone should have the right to clean, healthy, affordable food to eat, including the ability to grow some of their own. I have been married to my loving wife Shoshana for almost 10 years. We have two children, Benyamin and Azucena, and currently reside in West Berkeley, CA.
