Meet the CCOF Staff

My day starts with a bike ride along Santa Cruz's foggy coastline.
 
At the CCOF home office, Erica and Lucia say hello as I walk my bike into our open office space. I pass the policy and marketing teams who joke with one another as they prepare for their morning meetings. I smile at the office dogs who look up to see if I might give them a little attention.  
 
I put my bike away and note the pictures of smiling grantees from our Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund.

The first “gigafire” in  California  in decades, a single wildfire has reached a stunning size of more than 1 million acres, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

A community in the direct path of these angry wildfires is our fellow organic farmers, who already operate on razor-thin margins.

Our friends and organic colleagues in Australia endured months with no access to water. Communities lost years' worth of work and belongings that cannot be replaced.
