Liz Parades

Gardener and Community Educator

Liz is a land steward and community educator. Liz/they spent 15 years in the hospitality industry, before having an epiphany that changed their views of the world and how they wanted to navigate through it going forward.  From that moment on every aspect of their life began to align with reconnecting their roots to the land.  While studying Food Studies, they were led by an experience in growing food from seed to harvest aeroponically. It was what catalyzed their passion and desire to share with their community this urge to reconnect to the land and attain the right to food sovereignty.  Since that experience Liz has and hopes to continue to live a life in reciprocity with the land and community always.
