Laney Siegner Climate Farm School Director Sebastopol, CA, USA
Terra Team Instructor +1
I recently graduated from U.C. Berkeley with my PhD from the Energy and Resources Group, where I wrote my dissertation titled "Growing Environmental Literacy: On small-scale farms, in the urban agroecystem, and in school garden classrooms." I did research in the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington, D.C. (where I am from), and the San Juan Islands in Washington State. I farmed for several summers on Lopez Island, and aspire to do more farming and climate education jointly in the future. Before going to graduate school, I taught 8th grade in Boston Public Schools. I used to live in an off-grid tiny house that I helped build as a graduate school project, called "THIMBY": Tiny House in My Backyard.
