We are thrilled to introduce you to our stellar team of Battery Urban Farm education apprentices! You’ve already met Anandi, but now it’s time to meet…
Eushavia earned a B.A. from Vassar College in Environmental Studies with a focus in ecology and political geography. She completed a thesis on the pedagogy behind school gardens, and hoped to pursue this topic professionally. She was initially drawn to The Battery Urban Farm because of its focus on food system education and integrated learning; but also thoroughly enjoys the opportunity to work with her hands, and team of students outside–sharing the joys growing, tending, and eating delicious foods!
Shannon is a sociologist-turned-chef and food educator, who earned her Master’s in Sociology at American University in D.C. before becoming a certified Natural Chef at Bauman College in Berkeley, CA. She comes to The Battery Urban Farm to enhance the farm side of her farm-to-fork community education goals. She loves watching people of all ages taste new fruits and vegetables and discover a world of fresh flavors that should be accessible to everyone!
Katrina Ceguera developed her interest in food justice while pursuing Environmental Studies at UC Santa Barbara. She came to Battery Urban Farm with the intention to learn the ins and outs of urban farming and eventually start her own urban food project. Her favorite thing is to watch a kid hold a worm for the first time.
Aaron graduated from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque with a major in inter cultural communications and a minor in sociology.
Aaron is in the program because it is his dream to work with plants and improve his community by teaching people how to grow their own food and eat healthier.
His biggest enjoyment is watching the farm mature and take shape through everyone’s hard work and watching the children light up with enthusiasm as they learn new topics.
